Wednesday’s “KIDS! DIY Tweens-Make a Bristlebot!” workshop was FUN!
Check out the link to some pictures featuring some of ZANY kids who participated
in this science-oriented, hands-on, buzzing-with-life-craft!
BristleBots had a fantastic turn-out! Fun and focused, these kids followed
Miss Heather in her kinetic-robotic-workshop which featured toothbrushes
generously donated by Center Street Dental, and other supplies provided by
the Auburn Public Library; These included a motor and watch battery per child.
Since this workshop was SO popular, please be sure to follow us on FB, our Blog,
and create a shortcut to our online calendar for future and easy reference!
Try to register early as workshops tend to fill up quickly! We’ll see you NEXT time!
