Artbots is an after school class for seven to nine year-olds I teach at the Artery studio in San Francisco. The hour and a half session allows kids to make there own robots out of found objects and a few specialized pieces. We learn about batteries, motors, LEDs and wires creating kinetic gizmos and roving vehicles. It is a lot of fun and the kids are always impressing me with the designs they come up with.
