Robots that Earn Money
Overview:

Build-It-Yourself is looking for a few hot shot inventors and entrepreneurs to fix the global economy.

The Problem:

The global economy has tanked!
The capitalists say, "Too many lazy no-gooders are looking for free rides. Not enough people are building."
The socialists say, "There are too many greedy, scurrilous scoundrels and vile villains."

The Mission:

Your mission is to build machines that:
create value,
make life better,
provide a service,
set the world straight and
earn a fortune!

Deposit a quarter in a coin sensor and this fortune teller will spin your future with only a 75% margin for error.

You'll need:

LEGO Mindstorms Kit
Premium Quality Junk
Build-It-Yourself Tools

Lesson Plan XLS

Hall of Fame:
Value Proposition # 1
Max, 2003

Max grossed $27.25 in one day with this slot machine and candy dispenser.  Profit after taxes and expenses was 97% of gross ... better than Microsoft!

Max calculated the probability of candy payouts to ensure profitability and win the loyal support of his investor Dad.

Hall of Fame:
Value Proposition # 2
Herman, 2004

25 cents will get you a big wet kiss ... popular with the girls! 

Herman is working on a dollar bill detector so he can test what the market will bear and maximize his revenue.

Hall of Fame:
Value Proposition #3
John, 2005

When you feed this entrepreneur a quarter, it chomps, swallows and burps. Then it offers a peanut in exchange. 

Best deal in all of Massachusetts!  

Hall of Fame:
Value Proposition #4
Emily, 2006

For only a quarter, this dude will play a tune and put a smile on your face. 

For those who don't have a quarter, Emily built a free Trial Button.
