Good needs an easier on and off switch

I like the design. However I wish the battery pack had an on and off lever. Currently you have to reach up and unplug the battery pack from the motor which often knocks off decorations hanging from the pipe cleaners. I can also see the attachment pieces bending. I am a teacher and like to buy materials for multiple use. Otherwise I like the design and activity a lot and will probably try and use it in my classroom.

The project was very enjoyable

When we where making the robot, the steps explained by the teacher where very clear. When the robot was finished it worked perfectly.

Great class!

I really loved this class and robot we built. We added lights and it was really awesome to see it move.
