We arrived at West LA College early on Saturday morning to set up our booth with a wind tunnel, simple circuit blocks, a robotic arm, scribbling machines and bristlebots.
In working with lower grade students here at St. Matthew's I learned that scribblebots made from scratch can be challenging for small hands. Therefore, I decided to design a scribblebot body that can be 3D printed and used instead. This event gave me the opportunity to test out my creation, and I think it worked out well. Given the short amount of time we saw each group, it was helpful to have a template ready to build. Please feel free visit the above link, print one for yourself, and let me know what you think.
I hope to participate in more events such as this in the future. These are our future designers, inventors, builders. Let's give them something to be inspired by.
