D.I.Y. Art Bots!
I'm a little late on posting this one, but I wanted to at least show off the results of the great bots designed by the 6 teens that came in to make art bots on Wed, April 27th! We put the motors found inside of dollar store toothbrushes into bodies of plastic cups and toilet paper rolls. The trick is to put the motor on in a way that will create an imbalance so that the bots will keep moving around on the table. Each of the bots have markers for legs, so as they move around on the table (which is covered in paper) they draw designs on it! Everyone had uniquely designed bots. It was a lot of fun and I think we'll be doing it again at the Municipal branch library this Summer!
