This workshop is for children between 5 and 10 years old.

 

Koko NYC’s mission is to empower kids to see potential all around them, to see their own ideas to fruition and to make connections between art and science. The use of re-purposed materials as the foundation of Koko’s building supplies engenders environmental awareness as well as a spirit of innovation. Kids learn to see “trash” as an opportunity to create something new.

 

In this workshop, teaching artists from Koko NYC will help guide and encourage participants as they choose recyclables such as plastic bottles, cardboard and paper to create sculptures that, when combined with littleBits, come to life and light up, twist, turn, buzz, blink, and shake! Through the process of designing and building, kids will experience the practical and cultural possibilities of new inventions! Participants will power their inventions with their own muscles by creating green energy with a bicycle generator!

 

While the Bit Bots workshop is happening, ​Koko NYC will also offer a free opportunity for kids and interested adults to try their hand at boat building! We will bring a jig to ​define the shape of the boat along with materials that kids can use to build around it​.
