Warming up to Worm Gears

June 23, 2018

At Bervie Engineering CLub, we had a blast warming up to worm gears.  The sluggish motion produced when using the worm gear block is far from exciting to say the least.  However, it was fascinating to compare the rapid motion of the worm gear with the tired rotation of the meshed spur gear.  We had a chat about when worm gears may be useful and went on to use our engineering skills to tackle two challenges:  creating the slowest robot on wheels and creating the fastest paddler.  Trump was a huge source of inspiration for some of our budding engineers 🙂
