Grade 9 – RTH11 – Bump Bot

BumpBot1Project Description:

With this super exciting take home, students will build a rumba style Bump Bot. After their initial lesson, students get to put their knowledge of circuit diagrams to the test by incrementally wiring their robots using breadboards. They will also go over parallel and series circuits, switches and loads, and the symbols that represent them.  Students will witness different robot behaviour for each of the various wiring configurations that they complete. To make their robot work properly, they’ll need to know how to read the diagrams!


In this lesson the core concepts focused on will be: 

  • Series and Parallel Circuits
  • V, I, R, Calculations


Note: All lessons include a presentation and a hands on building period which they then use to perform various tests.



  • This is a take home project, each student will build and keep their own
  • $300 + $15/student for a class of up to 30 students
  • Price includes all materials, two qualified facilitators and all consumables required
