Recycle-Bot sponsored by the REC Foundation

As we look around at the environment in our classrooms and homes, we see materials and supplies that can be recycled and repurposed into other useful things.  Using your creative, design, construction, and artistic abilities we want you to create a Recyle-Bot using items like paper rolls, popsicle sticks, pipe cleaners, cardboard boxes, empty cans, scrap wire, paint, markers, holiday wrapping paper, fabric, old clothing, etc.

In addition we want you to share the construction process, design challenges, and purpose of your Recycle-Bot in a written presentation supported by up to three(3) photos. The required written presentation must be a student(s) work describing the process of design and the fabrication all focused upon the “Purpose and recycled materials” of this robot.

We look forward to seeing your creativity shine in this challenge.

Clarification posted 2/22/21 - These robots are intended to be static with no electrical components used.  Powered robots are not allowed for this competition

Well, according to the article “THE RECYCLING PROBLEM: A FEEL-GOOD STORY THAT’S TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE” it says “Sure, recycling beats throwing something right in the trash, but tons of our recyclables still end up in landfills or oceans (literally tons), making a mess of...

ekramek428

The purpose of this robot is to prevent a parent from leaving their family and possibly dying in the war zone. This robot is solar powered. He waits and knows when war happens. He fends off the bad guys but does not kill them, he just wants them to know that what they are doing is not fair. He also disarms bombs, and stops grenades from hurting anyone, so he tries his best to get everyone away from the said bomb and grenades.
