Electronics certainly aren’t just for adults or older kids, they can be great for little ones too – and this Scribble Bot kit proves it. It’s a fun, frenetic device designed to create wobbly images and shaky sketches, which can be varied by the way it’s put together. Get out the felt tips and paper, and start creating some jiggly wiggly vibrating robot art!
Using only two components and a battery, this incredibly affordable project is suitable for almost any age, when supervised by a parent. With no soldering required and all parts included, you simply have to tape one of the motors onto one of the paper bowls and insert a battery – switch it on and you’ll get some instant amusing artwork!
Once you have a few Scribble Bots assembled, you can watch as each one creates its unique pattern based on the weight distribution of the components. Inspire the kids you know, and create new makers for our world to learn from in the future!
