Building Instructions -
With tutorials, courses and building instructions with gears you could learn how to use Gear Wheels, Warm Gears and Racks. Everything spins. With a few gear wheels you could make it spin faster or harder. Check out the examples of different constructions, robots and attachments that make use of gear wheels.
This attachment is accomplishing three missions from the FIRST LEGO League 2022-2023. It is for the Chain Monster robot

This incredibly compact SPIKE Prime Box Robot is made for competitions like FIRST LEGO League (FLL) and World Robotics Olympiad (WRO). Whakatae (from Maori's word "whakataetae", which means "competitive") is long 17 LEGO units and is with a width of 15 LEGO units. In front of the wheels it has two color sensors which it uses to align. Whakatae also has two Large motors for moving and has two medium motors for attachments!
It's has "V2" in its name, because it's the second version of Whakatae - LEGO Education SPIKE Prime Competition Box robot. The difference between the two is that the first one can be built with only a Large Motor and a Color sensor in addition to the Base set, while this one needs an additional ball bearing. This provides this robot with a lot more stability and can be seen as a true upgrade to the first version.

We took a stab at building a box robot entirely with chains. It is difficult to find these chains. They were part of the original LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT Robots, but we had an idea. Can we power the whole box robot and all the attachments with the chains. This allows us to do a nice demonstration when and how chains could be used.
To build the robot you will need about 180 of these the chain pars - 3711a. They could be found from NXT and from some technic sets.

Swing game is a SPIKE Prime robot that is a game played by two people. The goal of the game is for both LEGO people to reach the center of the swing, without it tipping over on either side. The LEGO poeple are placed on motors, connected to two technic gear racks, that move along the swing. The motors are moved by two controllers, one using a color sensor and one using a Large motor. If one of the LEGO people moves too far without the other doing the same, the swing will tip and game over! Good luck and have fun!

This is the robot that we use to demonstrate a solution for competition. This is a Post season solution. We never release any solutions during the season as this will have a negative impact on the competition. But after the competition we try to make a review and to see how we could have accomplish it. Our goal is to be better for next year.
This robot is quite powerful. The attachment mechanism on the front is one of a kind as it can do several things with a single motor: it can lift, it can unlock, it can grab. All of this thanks to the unique mechanism of gears
