Make a wiggling robot that draws fancy circular patterns
Are you great at building things? Want to build your first robot? Take your creativity and crafting to the next level – ArtBots are half-craft, half-robot, all fun!
Build your first robot and bring him to life with a battery and a motor!
Feel free to bring anything extra/unique that you want to use to decorate your ArtBot.
Kids will learn about the basics of electricity, batteries, and motors in a safe and fun way. We start by learning about the concept of a circuit, and how electricity needs to flow in a loop. Kids will get to work together as they snap together their first circuit using batteries, magnets, and lights. We will look at and talk about some of the basic components (building blocks) used in electronics. We will also have a look inside an electric motor to see how they work.
Children will complete the workshop by assembling and testing their own ArtBot. We will then have time for students to play and draw with their robot.
No public classes are currently scheduled for this workshop.
