Paper Mechatronics with Tinkering Studio!

Sherrry Hsi, Colin Dixon, Michelle Hlubinka

6:00 – 8:00 PM, Exploratorium, Pier 15 (Embarcadero at Green Street)

In this hands-on workshop, we will explore the many ways paper slide, spin, and move in interesting ways. We will animate paper with technology that combines mechanical engineering and electronics. We are partnering with educators from the Concord Consortium for this event. The group researches paper mechatronics and other educational technologies across the Bay in Emeryville.

This event coincides with the opening of the third annual Curious Contraptions show. Participants can stay and enjoy the show after the workshop.

Hosted by San Francisco Maker Educator Meetups.
