Sample Projects

Cubit was built to encourage exploration and creativity, but we also know some users like to ease into these concepts with a bit more direction and structure. Below are some of our pre-made projects to get kids started on a journey toward STEAM mastery.

Butterfly Wing Defense Project

Different species of flying organisms have structures that help them survive. In this Unit, students research a species of flying creatures, such as butterflies, moths, or bats, and create a robotic model that flies and responds to input. Students program Dial Smartware to change the speed at which the organisms flaps its wings. Students also program the Ultrasonic Sensor Smartware to register an approaching predator, and move its wings flat or folded, which models behavior such as landing to hide, or displaying patterns such as eye-spots or poison-signaling color to ward off a predator.

Earthquake Simulator Project

In the Simulating Earthquakes Unit, students program a Shake Table and use it to design and test models of earthquake-safe structures. Students experiment in Cubit Workshop to write code to model the motion of seismic waves by shaking the 3D-printed Shake Table platform, then construct their earthquake-safe building model and conduct controlled testing to make claims about the safety of their structures. An optional activity provides supplemental mathematics and science support in which students learn about different properties of different types of seismic waves, and compute the frequency of the waves they are modeling.

**This Unit requires 3D printed parts. If you do not have access to a 3D printer, you may contact Cubit for information.
