Are you looking for fun STEM projects to get your elementary-aged kids interested in technology and engineering? STEM projects for kids are the perfect way to peak their interest. If learning is fun, kids are more likely to do it.
STEM Projects For Kids
Sunny The Robot (affiliate link) is a super fun and easy project for not only elementary school kids, but all ages. The box Sunny comes in is very colorful and highlights the best parts about Sunny, which will make your kids even more excited to start putting it together.
Once you open up the box, you will find that each piece of the robot is securely placed in the plastic insert. Most pieces were fairly easy to get out of the packaging, but the module does have an extra plastic covering that will require scissors to open.
Instructions are also included, which are displayed on a large poster in paragraph form beside pictures. The instructions are a bit wordy, so it is likely that you will need to read them aloud to your child and assist as they construct Sunny.
When putting Sunny together, I tried to be careful when dealing with the wires. There is hot glue around the bases of the wires, but I was still afraid I would accidentally do something to pull one out of its place, but that didn’t happen. There are also tiny screws, which were hard to install at some points because of their size.
Be sure you have the correct size Phillips screwdriver on hand (very small).
Overall the construction of Sunny took about 15 minutes and was easier than it looks.
Once you turn Sunny on, you will hear a weird buzzing sound as the robot moves around. I am not sure why that happens, but it is pretty high pitched, which may be why our dog was not too happy with Sunny, as you can see in the video below.
Sunny, as well as the rest of the Funtastic Robots (affiliate link), are great products that will allow the younger generation to become more interested in stem subjects and fields as they grow up.
Sunny The Robot Activities
The flip side of the instructions includes activities your child can try with Sunny.
