Stern Center 5th
graders were challenged to invent an animatronic prop inspired by their favorite book or movie. They began by exploring how an electrical circuit works. Then, using littleBits and common materials and tools to make their idea come to life, they applied their understanding and created their animatronic prop. Students designed a Mini Mouse that chants Torah, a spinning character from It’s a Small World
with an opening jaw, BB8
from Star Wars, R2D2
, and a rollercoaster.Click here
