Maker Space: Move It!

Grab, scoop, hook, flip and grip as you design and build a device to pick something up - without touching it with your hands! Who might need your device and what might they need it to do?

Consider material properties and how you can build parts that can move, bend or rotate. Test out your device by transporting an object from one place to another. Will your device be able to securely contain your object over a distance?

Make improvements to your device and consider what you would need to change if you were transporting a different object or transporting to a different location.

Set up a Move it Maker Space activity at your space.
