Let’s get ready to rumble! Students learn about the engineering process, fluid power and simple machines as they build and perfect remote-controlled bots that use hydraulic cylinders to move up, down and side-to-side. The goal is to tip opponents over or push them out of the ring to win a Judo-Bot competition. In the process, students learn from their mistakes and experiment with alternative solutions.
