A robot is a machine that does tasks without the help of a person. Many people think of robots as machines that look and act like people. However, most robots do not look like people.

Most robots are computer-controlled devices with many parts. An industrial robot, for example, is an armlike machine that can turn at several joints. It has a handlike part to grasp and hold things. Motors move the parts in a robot.

In this box, we will make two little robots that have a small yellow motor to drive their movements.
