Judo-Bots are remote-controlled hydraulic machines. They use four hydraulic cylinders to move up, down, side to side, and any other direction you’d like. Tip your opponents over or push them out of the ring to win a Judo-Bot competition. Follow the engineering design process to create and evolve your Judo-Bot. Learn from mistakes and experiment with alternative solutions. Judo-Bots teach fluid power, simple machines, and the engineering design process.
