The Incredible Wall Hugging Mouse Robot
Join Sciensational Workshops and build your own wall hugging mouse robot which you can take home! When the bump sensor makes contact with the wall, a switch motor directs power to the left motor. This simple behavior allows this incredible mouse to follow any vertical surface on the left. You will see all of this amazing action after building your own! Your mouse can be decorated with eyes, ears, and whisker stickers- or create and draw your own! Learning through the inquiry method and STEAM based principles, you will also build other robots working in smaller groups. Build a sumo wrestler, have tug of war events, and make the robots perform creative things for your group. Robots in this portion of the workshop are not taken home.
Brick Building with Lights and Sound Workshops
How about becoming an architect and electronics scientist. Combine everything into one. Make endless combinations of brick construction and electronics. Invent anything and make it work all by doing it the Sciensational Way!! How about building your own light post with color effects. Build and design your own brick tower, light it up, play music, and turn on your LED'S. Build your own brick bridge with melody and sound. Construct a brick mammal, a three level house, and light house. Put in overhead lights. Now it is your time to design, think, and use your inventors skills. The sky is the limit! All of this you take home. STEAM your way to the future!
Children may register morning, afternoon or both. Children that register for both workshops should bring a peanut-free lunch snack and a drink. We will provide supervision at no extra charge.
