Make your own mechanical sculptures or stories, known as automata, with familiar materials like cardboard. We’ll use simple mechanisms (like cams, levers, linkages, gears, pulleys, etc.) to make objects move up and down or back and forth or spin around. Design a scene that you imagine, then build a simple machine to make it work.
