Make your own Scribbling Machine at Vacaville library

By From page A4 | December 25, 2012

VACAVILLE — Scribbling Machines are coming to Vacaville Town Square Library.

In  collaboration with UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science and their inventor’s lab, the library will host a Science Day, 1 p.m. Jan. 2. at 1 Town Square.

In this hands-on science exploration, participants can learn about how circuits work. They can also visit the build-it station to design and build a battery-powered Scribbling Machine.

A Scribbling Machine is a motorized contraption that moves in unusual ways and draws a mark to trace its path. It’s made from simple materials and is based on the idea of motion created by an offset motor.
