Bots & Contraptions with MaKey MaKey, Roblox and Vex Virtual Robotics
About this Event

This week is all about games, robots, and hands-on creativity! We’ll start by building a hydraulic powered lift, a DIY electromagnet with wire, a nail, and a battery, and a spinning wire sculpture using a homopolar motor. We’ll also design, code, and play in our own Roblox Game Studio worlds where our AI characters explore and interact. And we’ll design Vex virtual robots that create geometric art and learn color-based algorithms. To playtest our new platformers and worlds, we’ll create our own game controllers using MaKey MaKey microcontrollers. Hands-on building is so much fun, especially when we can see our creations in action! It’s a bot playful learning!

Projects Includes:

  • Hydraulic Machine: Build and test a hydraulic powered robotic arm or lift
  • Roblox Game Studio: Terrain generating and world building
  • DIY Electromagnet and a spinning wire sculpture with a homopolar motor
  • Vex Virtual Robotics: Create and code AI bots that count colors and generate geometric art
  • MaKey MaKey Controllers: Build microcontroller game controllers with MaKey MaKey and Play Doh circuits.
