With all the parts from our drawers, the kids had a blast putting random parts and pieces together to create an exciting, motorized mechanical android! Here are some pictures of the event, and what the kids made!

Other parts that we put into kits are items such as colorful wire, springs, gears, pieces of cd’s, and electronic components, to augment our robot’s look and feel
