Solar SPRK+ Lesson 5: Chariot Engineering Design
- Students will identify possible design solutions to have a Sphero SPRK+ pull solar panels as a portable power source.
- Students will work in groups to determine the best possible designs and construct and test these designs with their team.
- Students will determine the strengths and weaknesses of each design and incorporate these findings into further construction phases.
Students will work through the engineering design process to build a chariot for their SPRK+ that will carry their solar panels through a maze to a charging station. Students will draft prototypes, test their designs, and make changes to their design based on the initial success of the chariot.
