    • Drawing Machines!

      Description:

      In the one-session design challenge, Drawing Machines!, young makers invent wiggling electrical creatures that draw fantastic geometric patterns. You and your students use engineering and design thinking to make a creature stand, its motor spin, and LED’s glow. Each student creates a working, take-home drawing machine.

    • It’s Alive! Kinetic Creature Lab

      Description:

      Who says sculpture can’t dance or draw? In the technology residency, It’s Alive! Kinetic Creature Lab, your young makers invent kinetic electromechanical creatures with distinct personalities! Students draw “coded” character sketches, decode the work of their peers, and develop their designs into 3-D creatures by “sketching with stuff.” Finally, they bring them to life with motors, LED lights, and electrical circuits. Elementary students explore color, line, shape, form and kinetic elements, and assign personal meaning to their design choices. Participants in grades 6 and above create coded creatures with increasingly more complex circuits and unique kinetic elements that allow them to draw. All creatures go home after a culminating creature dance party!
