Art Bot Throwdown (at PCAD)

March 6 @ 6:30 am - 8:30 pm

Technology and Art

Art bots (sometimes called Scribblebots) are robots that draw on their own. Their vibrating motor sends them skipping across the paper on art-supply legs. We’ve been making Scribblebots here in the Maker Space, and now we’re excited to partner with our friends at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design for a ART BOT THROWDOWN!

Join a team of expert builders from the Lancaster Science Factory and PCAD on Friday, March 6th (First Friday) to get building. We’ll help you build your bot (or enhance one you’ve already created). Then, take your bot-created art and enhance it with a human touch. Could you win the vote for “Best Art Bot” or “Best Robot-Human Art”?

Participation is free, but if you become attached to your art bot you can take it home to make endless masterpieces for just $5. Ages 7+.

Event will be held downtown at Pennsylvania College of Art & Design: 204 N. Prince Street, Lancaster, PA 17603

 

Event Schedule

6:30 PM – 7:15 PM: Art Bot Workshop. Build an art bot or bring your own and experiment with changes or additions.

7:15 PM – 7:30 PM: Explore the scribble possibilities and break out the art supplies!

7:30 PM – 8:00 PM: Create a masterpiece of art from your art bot scribbles.
