Maker Workshop: Advanced Bristle Bots

Make a brush come to life by creating a Bristle Bot, a tiny shaking robot that can dance across a table. Attach some markers to it, and it can draw! Tinkerers will learn how to complete a simple circuit to turn the Bristle Bot’s motor on and off. This is an advanced version of a Junior Maker Workshop that we have hosted previously, but no prior experience is required.

What is Tinkering?

Tinkering is learning through making. Participants in this workshop will be encouraged to make mistakes, experiment with new materials and create a Bristle Bot without set instructions. What will your Bristle Bot look like?

Please note:
