You can lead pupils through the design process as part of this activity: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1c_oadVUzPGEUxeF33BoIVB5xAHVGoRvz/view https://drive.google.com/file/d/1eakVM6QyCacaKYJCb_ryqps0fmZDVpQn/view?usp=sharing What will the tool look like? Will it combine functions of more than one tool? What job or work does your robot do: build houses, build devices for the kitchen, police person, fire fighter, doctor, etc. Design a robot to do this job in the future. Expect pupils to be able to describe how it moves, uses tools and why it is better than tools/solutions around today.
