Drawbot workshop

The Minimondi Festival of Parma gave me my first opportunity to experience the activities of a children-oriented workshop. The purpose of this laboratory was to build a kinetic tool (in the form of a little robot) using the following materials: 1 milk-frother; 1 piece of velcro (height 3cm); 4 pieces of self-adhesive Velcro (height 3cm); 4 felt-tip pens. With these, children can easily build a simplified version of a drawbot and then play with it in order to test the many possible abstract effects that can be obtained on paper.
