This workshop will teach design and engineering in a fun way. Work in teams to come up with a design for a ‘Scribblebot’. This design will then inform the construction of the robot. In the construction process you will learn how to circuit a motor. Students will learn about the conversion of electrical energy to motion, heat and electromagnetism.
