Cardboard Hydraulic Arm Project
You are making a cardboard robot arm that has at least three hydraulic systems to control its movements so you can rescue object and people from the radioactive zone.
The arm needs to move:
1. Up and Down
2. Right and Left
3. Scoop opens and closes
4. Pick up and move an object
Radioactive Rescue using Hydraulic Arm
Make it better!
Remember, any changes you make from the original design plan should be documented and presented by the team. If there are changes that are not documented, then it appears that your team just can't follow directions.
Here is a powerpoint with the directions step-by-step with pictures.
Here are the original directions from Pueblo Science Original Directions
Here is a video of how they assembled it, even they made improvements from the original directions to the video.
