Non-GCSE – Lesson 3 – Chassis design and build

Curriculum KS4 Unit Lesson

In this lesson, learners consider and experiment with materials to produce a chassis for their robotic buggy. They need to test that their material of choice can withstand not only the weight of the motors, wires, board, etc, but also the additional weight from a power bank, to make it independent of a connection to the computer/mains. Their prototype must also maintain structural integrity when it moves.

Learning objectives
