For Families

Construct a robot. Hear the logic of Leonardo's mind at work as he invents the first modern robot, an automatic drum machine whose rhythms can be reprogrammed flexibly and whose tempos adjust automatically.

Make it into a horse with forelegs that move in the cadence that you program into it. Try different standard cadences; then invent your own.
