Event Details

“At first when I came here, I had no idea how any of this electric stuff worked, and I’m just like, how I am going to be able to make this? But over time with my mistakes, I realized it gets easier and it comes to me and sometimes making a mistake actually teaches you something – why something doesn’t work.”

June 6 PA Day Workshop

9:00 AM - 4 PM. Bring your lunch.

Ages 8-18

Want an awesome, super-fun way to spend your June 6 PA day?

It's easier than taking candy from a baby, take your candy from a robot! In this workshop, you will construct your rube-goldbergiest idea on how to deliver the sweet goods at the press of a button. Learn to use motors, woodworking, and LED lighting to build your contraption. If you're more into candy creation, 3D design and 3D print your own chocolate molds. Of course, what's an invention without a way to sell it? At the end of the day, make a video commercial for your soon-to-be-kickstarted project!

The inspiration for this is this awesome idea on Instructables we found for the woodworking day for the York School Camp we recently did:
