I want to start a project with my 6yo daughter to nurture her interest in robotics.
Currently have a fairly large RC collection of ground, air, and water based units, I have plenty of unused Arduino boards megas and unos...I have a power wheel chair sitting, two sabertooths one a 2x25 and one a 2x32...2 150lb 10" stroke and 2 150lb 6" stroke linear actuators...various metals in aluminum and weld steel, a TIG and a fluxcore welder...plenty of multi channel transmitters, etc etc...with my daughter's prodding, I want to use some of the "junk" (her words, not mine) in my workshop to build a robot with her. I have enough base parts to build something I'm sure she will enjoy, the question is, what to build?
My request: ideas for a roving unit with RC override, single pinch style gripper or vacuum conforming 4 dof arm, either a rather large bot, or maybe something on the small side for her to take to school. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
