After the first box robot course and its enormous success, we decided to build a second box robot. This time with fewer parts and with only three motors. The EV3 set comes with one medium motor and this robot will be easier for new teams. It is also lighter and more simple. Take the course and learn the ideas that we have in mind in simplifying a robot. Use this course with students and try to experiment to make the attachments and construction even simpler.
The robot also has one other major differences. The motors are at the back of the robot while the attachments are placed at the front along with the sensor. This is a completely different experience for programming, following lines, aligning to lines and will get you and the students to new understanding on the subject of robotics.
