Robots at Durham Arts

I had an amazing time at the Durham Arts Council today, and so did 22 Summer Camp artists! I brought prototype builds of Compass, Antenna, and Hammer to the afternoon session. Armed with an instruction sheet, I let the kids get to the building.

After some struggle (and hard lessons about making good instructions), the volunteers got everybody a finished robot to play with, even for the younger campers. Sadly, I didn't get a photo of every bot - my camera setting got tweaked and there were too many blurry shots - my apologies campers!

Once the bots were built, I was surprised, yet again, by how fast the robots got decorated with unique characteristics, patterns, and even names. Thank you campers - you helped to make this very fun!

Thanks also to Willa Brigham, Christina, Janet (for Sharpies), the volunteers and everybody else for their help making this a fun session.
