Brushing up on brushbots

Brushing up on BrushBots

July 5th, 2011

Elementary school students gear up their BrushBots at a FEST (Families Exploring Science Together) event at the Imiloa Astronomy Center in mid-May. BrushBots are constructed from a toothbrush head and a miniature motor. Waiakea High Robotics Club, the Imiloa Astronomy Center, TMT and the Hawaii Space Grant Consortium sponsored the festivity. As a possible bonus, it's not immediately known if the experience with BrushBots has encouraged actual teeth-brushing. Credit: Hawaii Space Grant Consortium
