During Minimondi Festival in Parma, I've experienced for the first time a workshop for children.
The purpose of the laboratory is to build a kinetic tool (a little robot) using the following materials:
- 1 milk-frother
- 1 piece of Velcro (height 3cm)
- 4 pieces of self-adhesive Velcro (height 3cm)
- 4 felt-tip pens
Children can easily build a simplified version of a drawbot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUHngLWFgXI)
and then play to test all the possible abstract effects on paper.
