Demonstrate your power over our robot overlords while enjoying some wholesome fun this weekend by building your very own scribbling machine. Scribbling machines are motorized toys that draw unique designs by bouncing, spinning and wiggling under the power of a vibrating offset motor. This Wednesday, June 6, amateur engineers and artists ages 13 to 17 are invited to register at the Erna Fergusson Library for this free scribbling machine-building class. The demonstration lasts from 2 to 3pm. Registration is required and participation is limited to 15 builders.
