Dancing Robots

Pera Kids
Ages 9-11

At the workshop to take place during Science and Technology Week, we’ll be chatting about examples in art in which technology is used and then we’ll meet the musician Yuri Suziki, who has formed an orchestra. We’ll design a dancing robot using various materials and then learn about the relationship between the operational speed of a simple motor in an electric circuit and the energy source. We’ll also learn how engineering skills are used in daily life, scientific research and how they’re used in art.
