Waddle Bot Building Instructions

This web page contains building instructions for the Waddle Bot.  The Waddle Bot was developed by the team at Hillsboro Hill School (Hillsboro, OR) for their NXT-based Robot-C class.  Waddle Bot is a quick-build alternative to the relatively complex tri-bot designs in the NXT 9797 kit and NXT Video Trainer 2.0.

Domabot Building Instructions

This web page from Damien Kee's site contains building instructions for the Domabot.  Domabot is Damien's design for a quick-build alternative to the relatively complex tri-bot designs in the 9797 kit or NXT Video Trainer 2.0.  Most of the NVT2 lessons can be used directly with (or easily adapted to) the Domabot.  Damien's has authored a series of books with activities for the Domabot and his web page has links to these books and other related resources for teachers.

The pen is raised straight upward in this model as opposed to swinging upward at an arc, which most students will do resulting in poor quality lines.
