Join the Science Club: Build an Art Machine

11:51 minutes

Lots of programs have a book club, in which people agree to all read the same title and then convene later to discuss it. In the inaugural meeting of the Science Friday Science Club, we ask listeners to participate in a shared challenge: Build a mechanical device that can make art. We want to see your creativity, tinkering/making skills, and curiosity on display. We’ll meet back in one month to talk about what we learned. Find out more about the Science Club and our project at sciencefriday.com/scienceclub.
