Craft in Focus – BitBots
June 3, 2017 - June 4, 2017$10
Kids! Make your own turning, buzzing, shaking BitBot!
Come learn how motors and generators work with our recycled bicycle generators! We will be making our own robotic inventions out of recyclables!
In this workshop, teaching artists from Koko NYC will help guide and encourage participants as they choose recyclables such as plastic bottles, cardboard and paper to create sculptures that, when combined with littleBits, come to life and light up, twist, turn, buzz, blink, and shake! Through the process of designing and building, kids will experience the practical and cultural possibilities of new inventions! Participants will power their inventions with their own muscles by creating green energy with a bicycle generator!
While the Bit Bots workshop is happening, Koko NYC will also offer a free opportunity for kids and interested adults to try their hand at boat building! We will bring a jig to define the shape of the boat along with materials that kids can use to build around it.
