Discovery Science!

Notice this Vibrobot's switch, fabulous eyes and fancy mustache!
Thank you to everyone who came to this exciting program.  The kids started working at 6:30 and at 8:00 pm Sara said "Five more minutes!"  A chorus of groans and "Oh no, not yet" was heard.
 Everyone brought home their creations and ideas about what other things at home could be turned into a Vibrobot!
