Bristlebots are small robots made by attaching a vibrating motor to a toothbrush head. By adjusting the position of the pipe cleaner arms, they will travel in circles, straight lines, or scoot around in random directions. They are great for teaching engineering, motors, circuits, and principles of balance. What can you make your Bristlebot do?

Explore how solar power is converted into motion with a Solar Bug. A 2V solar cell connects directly to a self-stick vibrating motor causing this bug to wiggle around when placed in direct sunlight. This project allows students to flex their creative muscles, while also learning about solar power, motion, and vibration. We recommend personalizing your Solar Bugs by painting or coloring the cardstock bodies before assembly.
