Cup Challenge | Pensacola MESS Hall

Cup Challenge

Let’s try an activity inspired by engineering & robotic motion! This seemingly simple challenge requires at least two people, small cups, a rubber band, and string. Start with three cups and try to stack them into a tower together. Watch the video below for set-up instructions and give it a shot!

MESS Around

Make two grasping tools and have a race. Try to lift other objects like pens and utensils. Build a cup tower as high as you can. How is this robotics? The motion of a robot requires multiple motors to work together to generate motion in the desired direction. You would need to design your machine to have the correct tools and write your program to direct all of those moving parts for the right intention.
