Preview of Starter Building Kit for InsectBot finalists

Five finalists of the competition announced in late August, will receive an InsectBot Starter Building Kit which will include several components, the core compulsory elements being:

  1. Processor
  2. Sensor
  3. Motor

When designing your InsectBot be sure to consider the above compulsory components and highlight them in your design. Our judging panel will be reviewing all entries after the 9 August 2022 and the lucky five finalists chosen will be sent the Starter Building Kit to bring their design to life.

To help you meet the judging criteria and be in with a chance to be a finalist, here’s a preview of what will be in the kit…

Think outside the box!

You do not need to buy new components to build your InsectBot. Have a look at what you already have at home (LEGO or mecano). Check out the following link with the list of makerspaces in Aotearoa as you could use their 3D printer to print parts for your build.
