Geometry

Imagine
Cannon is officially a STEM school. One of our STEM mascots is the robot that is in the front lobby. Mrs. Blizzard wants to have more robots that students have created using the 3-D printer on display for our STEM school.


Plan
You will create a robot model using 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. Then you will design your robot using Tinkercad and then print your 3-D robot. Your robot will need to include at least 2 shapes that are congruent. You will need to report how many faces, vertices, and edges are on your robot. You will report all this information on a sheet you will get from your teacher. You will need to learn all you can about 2 and 3 dimensional shapes, congruent shapes to complete the project.

You will work every day with your class on lessons to help you acquire the schema to complete the project. You can also use the links below to help you on your quest to design the best robot.

Design and Improve
You will design and build your robot using 2 and 3 dimensional shapes.

Share
The robots will be graded using the following rubric.

0-69%
70%-79%
