BEAMbot Building 

When: Thu., July 23, 1-4 p.m. 2009
Price: FREE
The Reuseum, a scientific, industrial and military surplus outlet that sells electronic components, tools and obscure technology is hosting a BEAMbot building workshop. Adults and youth age 12 and older and children ages 8-11 accompanied by an adult can bring an old electronic device (cell phone, VCR, DVD player or audio cassette player) to dissect and reincarnate into a autonomous robot called BEAMbots. BEAM stands for Biology, Electronics, Aesthetics and Mechanics and the robots come in all shapes and sizes with some responding to light, sound or heat. During the workshop, participants will learn the art of DIY (do-it-yourself) repurpose electronic work to turn old items into new electronics. The workshop teaches the fundamentals of hand soldering, electrical circuits and recycling technology. The myriad types of BEAMbots include fliers, swimmers, climbers, jumpers, sliders, crawlers, sitters, squirmers, rollers and walkers. The possibilities are endless.
