Doodle Bots

Students make robots that draw by themselves! Using simple materials and a vibrating motor, students make and decorate their own Doodle Bot. Learn about robotics and discuss the positives and negatives of automated machines.

Grades K-2 students take home a simple bot made with a small vibrating motor and a coin cell battery. We learn about power, motors, and how batteries work. 

Grades 3-6 students work in teams to make larger bots that use a bigger offset motor. We learn about how simple circuits work including power (input), motors (output), and offsetting the motor to create movement. 

 

Balloon Cars

Students build air powered cars. Using simple materials students learn about Newton's laws of motion. At the MakerSpace, students get a demonstration on the use and application of the laser cutting machines.

Grades 3-6

 

Paper Circuits

Students learn how to create circuits in series and parallel using copper tape and paper. Experiment with paper and lights.

Grades 4-12

 

Silkscreen

Students make a stencil of their own design and then silkscreen their own posters. Learn about pattern design and positive and negative space as it relates to both art and math.

Grades 4-12
