Engineering and Design
• Most humans spend over 95% of their time with
• Take the role of an engineer. Assume the
engineering task is to design an electrical device
that light up a small light bulb and moves.
• Predict and list the type of components the
electrical device should have to allow it to work
Jiggy Bot
Take the parts out of
your baggie.
Sketch your
prediction of how
the Jiggy Bot
components come
together to light up
the LED and move.
Jiggy Bot
Match the part with
the purpose on your
data table.
3.0 v battery
PCB (printed Circuit board)
Battery holder
LED – short leg in square hole
R1 - 680 ohm resistor
M1 - Vibrator motor
Wire legs

Label component parts on each diagram
Safety First
• SAFETY ALERT: Wear Safety Glasses; be aware of the
hot temperature of the soldering iron, inform your
instructor immediately if burned; DO NOT go ahead
of the instructor as they lead you through the
assembly; hold your hand over leads when clipping
and/or trimming
• Read the directions carefully. Follow the step in
order with your instructor. When you have your
component into the proper placement, ask for a
check of placement from your lab instructor or
lab technicians.
Jiggy Bot Assembly
• 1. Observe both the top and bottom surface of
the PCB. Notice the words, symbols and
shapes outlined on both sides. The words,
figures, and shapes will help guide you to
where the components should be soldered.

• 2. Solder the 680-ohm resistor onto the PCB
board labeled R1. Put the leads through the
via and spread the legs out to help hold them
in place. Solder leads and then clip leads with
wire cutters

• 3. Solder Switch: Place it in the off position.
The switch should be pointing outward from
the interior of the PCB. Solder switch onto the
same side of the PCB as R1
Jiggy Bot = LED
• 4. Solder LED: Solder LED onto
same side of PCB as R1 and Sw.
Refer to the inventory handout
for proper placement. Make sure
your instructor Okays the
placement before soldering.
• *Notice that the LED has a short
lead and a long lead:
Round Via
• *always insert the short lead into
the square pad on the PCB and
the long lead into the round pad
on the PCB
• *Line up the flat side of the LED
with the shape on the PCB
Square Via

• 5. Solder Motor:
• Find the M1 shape on your PCB. Place the
motor in the appropriate position on the PCB
and solder.

Batter Pack
• 6. Solder Battery pack:
• Observe the back of the PCB and trim all leads.
• Observe the opposite side of the PCB board.
Arrange the battery pack in the appropriate
placement on the underside of the Jiggy Bot.
Make sure placement is correct. Make sure
the battery IS NOT in the battery pack. Solder
when ready
Engineering “Legs”
• 8. Leg Design: Use your creativity to put legs
onto the Jiggy Bot. You may use any available
holes. Remember you are going to race so you
may want to think about shape and
placement. This is also a good time to add
tails, wings, etc.

circle wins!!!
