E15592: Origami Robots in Spark 2023 (Mar. 18 - 19, 2023)
Unleash Your Inner Engineer with Origami Robotics! Do you love solving puzzles and creating things with your hands? Do you have an interest in robotics and technology? If so, join us for an exciting workshop where we will explore the world of Origami Robotics. We'll be using the art of origami to create robotic mechanisms using non-traditional materials. You'll learn how to fold and manipulate paper into complex structures that can be transformed into working robots. Together, we'll use an electronics simulation to show how the mechanisms you create could be actuated, giving them the ability to sense their surroundings and respond to stimuli. This workshop is perfect for 7th and 8th grade students who are curious about robotics, engineering, and technology. No prior experience with origami or electronics is necessary. Come with an open mind, a willingness to learn, and get ready to be amazed by what you can create!
