# Instant Success with Technology & Engineering

### Design & Technology - beginner level

CONNECT - Objective
Design, build and program a robot that can move itself: a distance of 1 m, using at least one motor, using wheels for locomotion and can display the distance it moved.

CONSTRUCT - Build It
Discuss different solutions to the design brief. Think about: How will you connect the motor(s) to the wheels to make the robot move? How will you attach the motor to the EV3 Brick? How will you program the robot to move the correct distance.

CONTEMPLATE - Test
How well does your solution satisfy the design brief? Record your data in the software. Name the columns and rows, such as Distance Moved and Observations.

CONTINUE - Modify It
Does the robot calculate the distance accurately - how do you know? What are some ways that others have solved the problem?

### Design & Technology - intermediate level

CONNECT - Objective
Design, build and program a robot that can move itself up an incline as steep as possible.

CONSTRUCT - Build It
Discuss different solutions to the design brief. Think about: How can the gears increase the motor power? How can a program control the motor power? Build and program your solution!

CONTEMPLATE - Test
How does your solution satisfy the design brief? Record your data in the software, naming the rows and columns, such as Trial Number, Incline Angle, Gear Ratio, Motor Power, Time and Observations.

CONTINUE - Modify It
Does the robot move up the incline easily or with difficulty? Have you tested a range of settings to optimise motor power? What other ways are there to solve this problem?

### Design & Technology - advanced level

CONNECT - Objective
Design, build and program a robotic system that moves a ball 90 degrees from one location to another.

CONSTRUCT - Build It
Discuss different solutions to the design brief. Think about: What kind of motorised mechanism can be used to move a ball? How can the robot move the ball and maintain control of the ball? How can you measure how well your robot works? Build and program your solution!

CONTEMPLATE - Test
How well does your solution satisfy the design brief? Record your data in the software, naming the columns and rows, such as Trial Number, Robot Successful or Robot Not Successful and observations.

CONTINUE - Modify It
Can the robot movement be made more accurate? What are some ways others have solved the problem? Describe two ways you could improve your robot.
