Hydraulic Pet Guide (hydro-racer) The Challenge
Scenario: You have been hired to design and prototype a hydraulic powered toy for a major manufacturer. The toy will replace the once popular Pull-a-Dog. Use your design and engineering expertise to develop and prototype a hydraulic pet.

Page 3

The Criteria
Your toy should meet the following design constraints.It should: • resemble an animal (insect, bird, fish, dog, etc.) or make-believe creature. • have parts that move in interesting ways when the toy moves (wings that flap, a head that bobs, a mouth that opens and closes, a tail that wags, etc.). • be hydraulically powered. • move forwards and move its parts using hydraulic power (it can’t be pulled or pushed). • be as unique and different aspossible. • have a “catchy” name. • be attractive and well constructed.

An Example Pet
It is now time to build an example hydraulic pet. Building the example pet will provide you with the knowledge and experience needed to design and construct your own unique hydraulic pet. Question: What will happen to the example pet when I am done? Answer: The example pet will be used to create your uniquehydraulic pet. You may choose to disassemble the example pet, or modify and add to it.


Warning: The small parts in this kit are a CHOKING HAZARD for small children. The parts for this activity and final hydraulic pet are not for children under 3 yrs.
