Build a Robotic Crane with BBC micro:bit

Use the Robotic Inventions for micro:bit to automate the mechanical movements of a crane.

In many robotic and automated mechanical creations, the movement of the motor matches the expected result perfectly. In other cases the motor movement is not exactly what we want. When this happens, we have three options: change the motor, change the code that controls the motor, and adapt the mechanical structure.

Use this as a base model for all types of automated mechanical interaction

In this activity, you are going to make a basic mechanical structure that looks like a seesaw. You will explore how to get different results by changing the mechanism, the code, playing with sizes and positioning of the motor.

Use the MakeCode editor to program the Robotic Inventions for micro:bit.
