Workshop concept
The Klackerlake (clack roach) is an invasive species: A crossbreed of vibrobot and LED-Throwie, a rattling and glowing bug. In this workshop, children (and grown-ups) learn how to build their own solderless glowing vibrobot. No previous knowledge is needed. Participants first explore how LEDs and motors work, and can then build their own designs.

This workshop is suitable for children age 8 or older (younger children might be able to participate with some assistance). Children under age 12 should bring their parents. The workshop will be held in English with Slovene translation.
