Beginners' brushbots

Battle, Steve



Upcycling trash into toys. Suitable for absolute beginners and aspiring makers. Parents should accompany young children. This is a practical hands-on workshop. Where we will be building simple brush-bots from recycled toothbrushes. We will add a small motor, a battery, and decorate them, then make them dance. Participants get to keep their robots.
