I built a bunch of vibrating marker-legged artbots with the kids at my son’s preschool the other day, and it was great fun. We taped motors with an offset weight on their shafts to the top of some plastic cups, chose different colors of markers for the legs, and set them in motion creating beautiful artwork. I’ve never seen groups of five-year-olds so focused as they were during the artbot session.
