PAPERCLIPS – What to do with them?

Let’s make a machine with them…….prototype robots ??? or even arduinoize paperclip action figures

In the process learn about mechanical machines including cranks, leavers and fulcrum points using paperclips. This is a simple and inexpensive project that will get you to learn a little about technology and inspire your creativity in a very mechanical way. The build is both easy and relaxing, the machines are interesting to design and fun to operate when completed. The fascinating form and function of these paperclip machines take on an element of art for all of us to enjoy.

All materials will be provided and you will walk away with a jig and know what to do with it.
