You’ll make three kinetic sculptures with this kit. You also need scrap cardboard, pen & scissors.
1
Make three Xs and connect each together with a brass fastener. These are your levers and fulcra.
2
Connect the ends together so they move in unison.
3
Design something that can talk! Draw a face on your cardboard & cut into two pieces.
4
Flip the face. Extend the sticks and fasten them with sticky foam. Keep the two pieces separated!
5
It talks! What did it say? Did you have to troubleshoot it to make it work? What else can we make?
6
Let’s make a grabber! Find scrap cardbord, and design two custom claws!
7
You have a mechanical claw that grabs and lifts! What else could you make?
8
Disassemble and rebuild into a sideways pointer machine! It moves right and left on an angle!
9
Create a pointer with scrap cardboard. Yours can be designed differently! What else can you make?
