Bristlebots Workshop

Bristlebots Workshop In-Person / Online

This workshop is available both in person and online!  You can choose your option during registration.

The head of a toothbrush, pipe cleaners, and a small battery and motor are all used to make these fun little moving bots. We'll see how experimenting with the placement of components effects the bot's movement while we learn about potential and kinetic energy. Once your bot is in racing shape, you can run it through a maze and try to beat your best time! 

Children under the age of 8 may require additional adult supervision for the placement and manipulation of small pieces.

While adults are welcome to join their children in the Meeting Room, please only register children for the event.

If you choose to do this workshop remotely as an online event, a link to a video tutorial will be posted in our WML Kids' Rooom Facebook Group at the start time. Take and Make bags will be available for pickup starting Monday March 21st, 2022. Please ask for them at the Children's Desk.
