Tinkering Workshop: Making Robots

Engage, Tinkering Workshop

The Tinkering Workshop is an opportunity for kids aged 5-7 to tinker with various materials to explore and create new things. Our first class of the Fall Tinkering Workshop involved Making Robots. We used recycled materials to find a body, arms, legs, a head, and a face. Students were very proud of their creations after class.
