This lesson is always a hit with the kids. This year we did the background a little differently. You can find previous years robots here. I really wanted the robots to stand out from the background so we used black paper and metallic paints to print gear-like designs. I collected some found objects; Lego and Kinex pieces, cardboard and plastic lids. The kids dipped the objects in the paint and pressed them onto the black paper. They were the perfect backgrounds for these cool robots. Here are a few of the finished products and you can check out the rest on Artsonia.
