2013 Summer Program

You put your left hand in, you put your left hand out, you put your left hand in and you shake it all about. OK, dance gets more complicated than that. You might move 60 muscles to dance. This robot will perform bravely with six.

Construct a 6 motor Robot and wired controller. The Robot will move forward and back, round and round. It will move its arms and head. But that's still not dancing. You will build and modify each limb to create your Robot's own unique movement. the finger bone's connected to the hand bone; the hand bone's connected to the wrist bone, and so on. Costume and make up your Robot. then join the class in line dances and, of course, rock and roll.
