Building a Robot From Scratch (with soldering!) (March 25)
Sunday, March 25, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
What is it? Our classes are designed around building simple robots. We create a collaborative environment where the kids have a good time, and learn something too.
What will we build?
We created this class for 7-9 year olds who wanted to learn to solder. We will be building the same robot as the 10-12 year old class but will limit the number of kids in this class to six. This will allow us to provide more personalized instruction for younger makers.
Kids will be learning to solder in this workshop, and they'll hone their craft by soldering a blinking LED pin. Then, we'll be building our own robots from scratch by taking apart an electrical fan, and using the parts along with some other found objects to create an awesome vibrating robot.
No previous soldering experience required.
What ages? 7-9 years old
