Robotic Arm


Lets explore the world of mechanical engineering and how to get things moving using simple mechanisms (levers) you can design and make your very own robotic arm using this simple step by step guide.


We want to encourage all children to explore and experiment. To become confident with designing and making products using their knowledge of Science, Design and Technology, Engineering and Maths. All projects are aligned with learning objectives across the STEM subjects. The resource card includes pictorial instructions, explaining how to design and make a robotic arm using levers.

Suitable for ages 8 – 11

This is a downloadable resource we will send you the link via email.

Included, step by step pictorial break down of how to make a robotic arm and what materials are needed.

Learning objectives covered:

  • Science: Forces, materials.
  • Design and Technology: Mechanisms, levers, pneumatic systems.
  • Maths: Measure
