In this episode, Nick’s mom asks Nick to mow the lawn but he really doesn’t want to. So, Nick, Anne, Shania and the androids come up with an engineering solution to build a lawn-mowing robot. They all work together to gather reusable materials from the junkyard in order to construct their robot. After building the robot, they conduct multiple tests and continue to fix any problems that arise so that the robot runs smoothly and does the job it is programmed to do!

This episode introduces children to the concept of engineering and what it means to be an engineer. In addition, it teaches children about reusing materials that they would normally throw out, to create cool inventions--like robots!
