Turn a brush into a robot! BrushBots are easy and fun to build and race. The tiny vibrating motor turns the bristles into thousands of little legs, then they scoot like crazy bugs. This amazing hands-on experience allows students to experiment with trial and error, learn from their mistakes, and understand the potential gaps between theory and practice.
