Description

Using various bone segments to create joints that will explain planar movement and then develop a mechanical model of different joint types that will allow certain movement in a robotic unit.

Subject, Grade, Level:
7
th Grade Science and Robotics/Coding

Timeframe:
Science 2-3 Days; Robotics 5-10 days


List of Materials:

oVERT 3D printed bones of various species unassembled (ideally 3 sets of 6 articulations)

oVERT 3D whole models of a bat and alternate species (min of two reference models)

Various metal nuts, bolts, washers, square, and angled pieces

Cut/flat pieces of rubber bands with tooth-picked size wholes (represents cartilage and tendons)

Learning Objective(s):


1. To identify and classify the different types of articulation (planar, hinge, pivot, condyloid, saddle, and ball-and-socket) based on its shape and structure as it relates to movement and function


2. To compare and identify similar joints on whole specimen skeletal structure


3. To explain the role of joints in skeletal movement


Science:


4. Compare joint movement to function across species as it relates to planar movement


Robotics:


5. To create similar joint types using prefabricated metal parts


6. Design and assemble joint as it relates to one component of movement in the robotic game criteria.
