Usually we don’t consider plants as intelligent organisms. Plants can move and act in strange ways if only we know what to look for. They do often exhibit interesting clues as to what might be going on in their “minds”. That’s where Plantoids come in. Robotic sensors and technology extend the intelligence of a plant and allow it to become something like a cyborg, able to move around and explore, hunt for food, and even ask for a drink of water! The Plantoid Robotics Workshop will show you how to build your first robot and how to start your first terrarium. You will combine them into a one-of-a-kind hybrid of science and technology that can literally grow and learn with you every day. People ages 12 and older will build and code their own roving, robotic terrarium. Children ages 8- 11 may participate if assisted by an adult.
Two Parts. Part II is on 6/24 at 9 a.m.
