Cardboard Automata: Mechanical Toys

April 19, 2016
10:00 am to 12:00 pm
Free, Open to the Public

Special STEAM Event for All Ages in Collaboration with the Cambridge Science Festival

Using rough and ready materials to create small kinetic sculptures that bounce, bob, spin, wiggle and wobble, this playful hands-on workshop will introduce makers to the various ways of bringing motion into 3-D design. Parents and their kids will work side by side to build simple mechanisms such as cams and levers and linkages.
