In our May MakerLAB, robot expert Nille and illustrator Chen Si will be showing us how to assemble small robots that walk like penguins – movements that can be controlled through a smartphone app! Participants are invited to bring cartons, tin boxes, and even drinks bottles for making their robot’s body with, and will be able to customize their robot as they go.
About the Technology:
The steering engine, orservo-motor, is the most common movement component in small robots. It provides much more power than its small size suggests. The engine works at any angle from 0 to 180, andcan be developed into a high-performance, digitally-controlled, speed-adjustable gear motor.
3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional object in virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an incremental process, where successive layers of materials are set down in different shapes.

About UCCA MakerLAB
MakerLAB is a joint education program held by Beijing Makerspace and UCCA. The event is a series of workshops that celebrate the idea of making while learning, and the practice of combining technology, design and art. Every workshop consists of a 30 minuteintroduction and a 3-5 hour hands on building experience on a selected project. Some projects can be completed individually, while others require team work.
Workshops are suitable for anyone aged 10 and above.
Please note, children and teens under 16 years-old should be accompanied by their parents.
From Tuesday to Friday 11:00-18:00 please call +86 10 5780 0200 to book. Please note that you can only book 1 seat at a time.
