Between November, 2014 and April, 2015 I am co-facilitating a workshop for students ranging in age from elementary to high school. The students are building automata and a housing for submission to a Mini Maker Faire.
I am also building automata to learn the process, pitfalls, and practical advice to impart to these makers.
This is the third automata I have built this month. I call it "The Cow Jumped Over the Moon," after the nursery rhyme.
