Our September Family Make Night event took place during Baltimore Innovation Week last week and we had a fantastic turnout! Our project for this event was Galaxy Bots – part spin art, part light painting robots. We had 56 people in attendance at the event, despite the heavy rain, and filled our space with awesome hands-on making for a few hours.
Families in attendance had a great time working together to assemble their Galaxy Bots and experiment with using them to create pieces of spin art as well as learning about how to create light paintings with them. We used our NanoLab to create a dark room for the light painting and captured some really great light paintings!
If you’d like to learn more about Galaxy Bots and how to make your own, you can find the tutorial on our Family Make Night website: Galaxy Bots Project Guide
