Grant funded by Institute of Museum and Library Services
"The chatter of the ideas and how they [water color bots] would work, and then when working together and changing it completely to create something different or making additional things to complement their creation." (Chesla, Elementary School Librarian)
The purpose of this grant was to design, develop and refine low-cost MAKEngineering take-home kits that provide learning experiences for youth in grades 3-6 and their families/caregivers.
On this site, we include information regarding our five kits including the packaging and activity instructions, a shopping list with links to various websites to order material, a list of consumables that will need to be replaced, a list of appropriate books to utilize with each of the bags, and images taken from youth.
Use the linking sticks and popsicle sticks to build anything of your choice. Options may include:
Building or structure
Piece of furniture

Use the provided deck of cards, hinges, and wooden dowels to construct at least one of the following:
