This is for anyone who would like to make robots, but think they can't. Last Christmas my husband gave me a tin can robot kit as a joke gift. I deviated from the instructions a bit:) This year I got a Green Science kit, meaning I had to use as much of the cardboard and packaging material as possible. Instead of the illustration, I made a bunnybot. The kits come with a motor. The legs are unevenly shaped so they walk kind of wonky and waddling. Very funny. Start with a simple kit and you'll think of all kinds of ideas. Gather the parts and build!!
