2 hours
Suitable for ages 6-11

Create your own scribble bot using recycled materials such as cardboard, pens, battery packs and motors to build your own robot that will dance and draw.

This workshop offers a rich opportunity for children to combine traditional crafts with digital materials through investigation and play that takes on new complexities, facilitating playful exploration and creative thinking about how to integrate circuits and create something that is unique and showcases each child’s individuality.
