School Robot Project

Have your class create a “robot” that will be on display at the Rocklin Mini Maker Faire. It can be functional or static, movable, interactive, made from 3D parts, cardboard, have LED lights, or just plain cute! It can be made out of anything you’d like but we do encourage recycled or reusable parts. This isn’t part of a competition but just to teach children to make just for the fun of making! Teamwork, creativity, and STEAM can all be applied to this project.
