Robots are made to go and do what humans either can not, or do not want to do. They are used in hundreds of ways from exploring Mars, to working tirelessly on a manufacturing line, to providing companionship. Not to mention they make great movie characters!
10 Awesome Robotics Projects You Can Do Yourself!

Science Fair Project Idea
How do self-driving cars stay on the road? How do vehicles with autonomous or driver-assist features automatically brake, steer around obstacles, or perform tasks like adaptive cruise control? Experiment with these behaviors and more in this science project as you build and program your own autonomous Arduino robot. Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Plenty of animals, like dogs and horses, can walk and run on four legs, but what about robots? Sometimes legs are better than wheels—try out this project to design and build your own quadruped walking robot! Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Have you ever wanted to explore cold or murky water? What about places where it could be dangerous or difficult for humans to swim? Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) allow humans to take pictures, videos, and scientific samples of underwater life and habitats while safely operating the vehicle from a boat or from shore. In this project you will design and build your own small ROV that you can test in a bathtub, pool, or nearby body of water. Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Do you like playing with radio-controlled (RC) toys like cars, planes, and boats? What if you could build and customize your own? In this engineering project, you will learn how to build your own RC boat using an Arduino and a plastic food storage container. Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
HELP! Locating survivors trapped under rubble is a difficult and dangerous task. After a natural disaster, like an earthquake, rescuers must act quickly to save as many lives as possible. They can use robots with different types of sensors to help find survivors. In this project you will build a sound-tracking robot that can use two microphones to drive toward a sound source. Designing the robot's algorithm will be up to you. Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Imagine how cool it would be to have your own motorized robot hand. Well, stop imagining and turn that daydream into reality! Start out by designing and building a robot hand. The Science Buddies project Grasping With Straws: Make a Robot Hand Using Drinking Straws shows you a simple way to make a robot hand with drinking straws, or you can design a robot hand from any other materials you think are suitable. Your hand design will need sewing threads, or some other mechanism, for motors to… Read more

Important Safety Information About Drones Drones are a lot of fun to fly, but they can be dangerous if not used responsibly. Local, state, and federal regulations about recreational use of drones may vary based on your location or change over time. For example, you may be required to register your drone, or be prohibited from flying it in certain locations (like near an airport or over a crowd of people). Before you do a science project with a drone, ask an adult to help you find out… Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Light sensors are part of many devices that we use every day. For example, they help your phone know when to automatically brighten or dim the screen based on ambient light levels. They can also be used to help solar panels track the sun, which helps the panels generate more power. Many spacecraft and planetary rovers (like the Mars rovers Sojourner, Spirit, and Opportunity) are solar-powered. In this project you will build and program your own solar-tracking robot. Optionally, you can add… Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Self-driving cars use a variety of sensors to evaluate and navigate their environment. Each type of sensor has advantages and disadvantages. In this project you will evaluate two common types of distance sensor (ultrasonic and infrared) and compare their performance in different scenarios. Read more
Science Fair Project Idea
Science Buddies has many projects about robots powered by vibrations, including bristlebots, vibrobots, art bots, junkbots, and brushbots. The motors and batteries you need to build these robots are available in the Bristlebot Robotics Kit. These robots all operate using the same basic principle. A spinning motor with an off-center weight attached to the shaft creates vibrations that make the robot buzz around. While you cannot directly control the motion of each robot, you can… Read more
