Check out the video clips of the mini robots teens made recently at the Main Library. These types of robots are known as "vibrobots" and include the Artbot/Drawbot (made from cups and markers) and the very tiny Bristlebot (made from a toothbrush). Click on the names of each robot for instructions on how to make these @ home. LED lights and motor parts can be found @ Electronics Goldmine.

This video clip from FamilyFun Magazine shows how to make homemade ice cream in just 5 minutes. It is especially fun to put gloves on and toss the baggies back and forth between two people to make the ice cream.
