Build a Robotic Hand
Experiment with movement using cardboard to create a robotic hand!
Learn how our arms move and the science behind prosthetics as we create an articulating hand out of cardboard. Make a hand that can pick up small objects and explore the topic of robots as we construct, test, and modify our designs!

Hello, I'm Glenn. I have had a lifelong interest in science, technology, nature, math, building things, & much more. Perhaps what makes me unique is that when I dress as a mad scientist, my friends tell me it's not a costume. Hope to see you in my classes. Until then I need to work in my secret lab on my d̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶r̶a̶y̶ hamster maze.
I regret to admit that I have eaten a brain sandwich...
