Summer STEM Activities for Kids: Bristlebots

If you've never made a bristlebot before, you are missing out!  This creative summer STEM activity uses a toothbrush, watch battery and pager motor (available on Amazon for about $5).

Kids will probably need help with this one as soldering is required, but it is well worth the effort.  By building a bristlebot, kids can learn about electricity, motion or even robots.

Take a look at eGFI (Engineering Go For It) for  instruction on how to build the bristlebot.
