This is a robotic fish my 5th Grade students have been working on!
This is a remix of Davision3d's "Fish" file. The students removed the tail, eye and jaw to create movable parts.
They have used Little Bits to build the moving parts - tail, jaw, and possibly the eye. The fish is designed to be seen from the "front side," which is the fish facing left as you look at it. The back side is where they mount the Little Bits.
They printed it in glow-in-the-dark Hatchbox PLA.
Once they have the robotic fish working, their next goal is to control it over wifi, and ultimately use it as an instructional tool to teach other students about fish.
It should be complete soon! We will upload parts, photos and video as we can.

We set up an iPad to run a Google hangout to monitor the overnight print live from our classroom!
Overview and Background
This is a Genius Project a group fo students worked on. They wanted to create a fish as part of their research, and use it as a tool to tach others about their learning.
Lesson Plan and Activity
No Lesson plan, per se
This was a creative addition to a multi-genre/ interdisciplinary genius project. Students used Design Thinking to work through an idea on a topic they were excited about. The group creating this fish wanted to learn more about fish and share their learning in a motivating way with younger students, or possibly students with special needs.
