Make a unique piece of art with a motorized contraption to take home!

In this 90-minute session we’ll create and decorate a simple DIY robotic friend made of spinning and wiggling motors, markers, tape, and a variety of recycled and repurposed materials. Then we’ll set the machines in motion and watch them leave behind trails of unexpected, scribbled patterns. 

This program is recommended for children aged 7 and up with an accompanying adult. Due to the nature of the materials we’ll be using, we cannot accommodate children under 5 to be present.

Advance registration is required. This program is designed for children and their caregivers to enjoy together.
