I need help with third grade science fair project brainstorming on Robots.

My third grader has decided on Robots for her third grade science fair project but I am having a block on what can be proven or disproven with her robot. What could her Hypothasis be? I do not really want to work from a kit but looking at options.

This is tough one Tracy. It's not like a regular science project such as 'I think heart rate will be greater when exercising in a warm room rather than a cold room' or 'more children will prefer Hersheys to Lindt chocolate'. (projects done with my children in past years).

Can she think of something that a robot 'might' be able to do and then do some on-line research to see if robots have been designed to do this task. Or do you know anyone with a toy robot that she could design an obstacle course for (even one of them Roomba vacuum cleaners might work!)

It is your daughter’s responsibility to create her hypothesis and her problem. It is her science fair project and with the exception of helping her spell words, it's up to her to do it. Unless the project is not receiving a grade or a prize, I think it’s best for it to truly be her science fair project.
