Hands-On Science Workshop
Machines with Attitude
Explore how even the most simple machine can appear to have personality. Use vibrating motors to create motion and hand-cranked gears to tell a story. Tinker with your machines to create expressive characters that act silly, shy, scary, happy, or any other way you choose.
