A ‘brilliant’ afternoon was had by members of the Doncaster home educating community making little vibrating ‘Bristlebots’ with Sparkbox (a great not-for-profit organisation based in South Yorkshire).
From the Sparkbox events notes for the workshop:
“A Bristlebot is a lively little creature that introduces children to the concept of robotics, motors and movement (think hexbug). Using a toothbrush head, a small vibrating motor and a coin cell battery children will design, make and decorate their own buzzing Brushbot. This event is free and all parts and materials will be made available at the start of the workshop. At the end of the workshop, which will last about an hour, we will have a Brushbot Challenge.”
