Children learn ins, outs of robotics at Malibu Library

Children tinkered with batteries, motors, wires and other materials Saturday, Jan. 24, during a robotics workshop at the Malibu Library.

About 12 children attended, along with their parents, and were guided through a step-by-step process on how to create their own robot using recycled materials such as cardboard, strawberry baskets and red plastic cups.

“This is one of the only opportunities that isn’t fee-based for the kids to learn where art and science meet,” said Jennifer Arnett, the mother of two children who participated in the workshop.

The event was hosted by MakerGuilds, a Culver City-based company that encourages children to create and work with their hands.
