Easton, innovator and designer Steve Norris was our special guest maker who
helped us celebrate robots!
|Frank: Face-detecting robot|
- Huey is a color chasing robot, which is
attracted to the color orange. Kids got
to hold up an orange piece of paper as Huey followed them wherever they
- Frank is a face detecting robot,
who recognizes the kid’s faces as they stand in front of it.
- Lastly, Butler-Bot is the robot made from a
trashcan who was roaming the floor for almost two hours straight. Butler-Bot was also featured in the latest
Transformers Movie! Steve spent a week
on the set and had an amazing experience, he said that he never thought his
hobby would take him this far.
|Kids making their scribble-bots|
The children also got the opportunity to make their own scribble-bots! These scribble-bots were made out of simple household items including the motor from the inside of an electrical toothbrush. For instrucions on how to make your own, click here to visit the Exploritorium website! The kids got to watch their robots come to life as they made cool designs scribbling all over the paper. Steve loves to inspire people into getting involved in science and technology, so watching the kids in awe as they designed their own robots was a great experience for us and him.
