Grab and Go STEAM: Make your own Robotic Hand!

July 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

We provide the materials and directions – you pick them up and make them at home!
Learn about Anatomy and engineering! The strings in your robot hand function much like the tendons in your own hand, which connect muscles to bones and let you bend your fingers. Your muscles create the pull that make your fingers bend and let you pick things up, just like your robot hand.
