Hook, line, sinker…. claw? Design and construct an arcade-style Hydraulic Claw controlled by fluid power. Move the upper cylinder, and watch your claw open and close below. Start by constructing your example claw, then engineer your unique design by incorporating recycling bin materials, 3-D printed end effectors and extra TeacherGeek components. Compete in engineering challenges – can your design snatch up gummy worms or marbles, or sort in a game of tic, tac, toe? Build once, tinker forever.
