On Saturday 15 February 2014 at the Melkweg in Amsterdam, a day for children was organized, called ‘Helemaal Melkweg’. Besides listening to music and watch movies, children could also come to a FabSchool workshop Bristlebots making by Waag, and in no time it was very busy at this tinkering corner. After the break, we were soon running out of motors and had to disappoint the remaining children.

Bristlebots are a kind of tiny robots made of a small vibrators, a cell button battery and the head of a tooth brush. This can then be decorated with all kind of things, and as soon as the thing is wired it will start 'walking'. The workshop was a great success!
