You know what STEM is right? Science, technology, engineering and math. These are skills that kids really need to have a nice handle on- both boys and girls. We incorporate STEM into our homeschooling as much as possible.
Let me show you how we took the parts from an old broken toy and turned it into a motorized coloring machine. My kids call this coloring of the future!
Supplies You Will Need:
- toy motor with attached wiring
- 9 volt battery
- 4 color markers
- electric “alligator” clip
- hot glue sticks and hot glue gun
- electric drill and screw
- plastic cup
For the step by step instructions, you can read them here. Here is what the coloring bot looks like in motion.
