Art Machines: An Arts & Learning Snack! You’ll make three kinetic sculptures in this Arts & Learning Snack. You’ll need scissors & a marker. Pop out components from the cardboard kit. If you don’t have a kit, make your own cardboard parts! Make three Xs and connect together with fasteners. Cardboard pieces = levers & fasteners = fulcra. Connect the lever ends together with fasteners so they move in unison. Let’s build something that can talk! Draw a face on cardboard & cut into two pieces along the mouth. Flip the face & fasten extended levers with cut pieces of sticky foam. Keep top & bottom separate! It talks! What does it say? Did you have to troubleshoot it to make it work? What else can you make? Let’s make a grabber! Use the scrap cardboard to design and build claws. Attach with claws closed! You have a mechanical claw that grabs and lifts! What else can you make? Take apart & rebuild into your own special machine. This one now has levers that move left & right! Design an attachment using scrap cardboard. This one has a finger! What could yours be?
