- Turn the robot over. Cut a regular drinking straw in half, then cut in half again. Tape two of the straw pieces to the middle of the back, leaving room in between.
- Thread the piece of string through the straws making a bit loop at the top.

To make the robot climb:
Hang the loop on a doorknob. Grab the beads or string and pull them out away from the robot and watch it climb all the way up then slide back down.
