The Robot Petting Zoo and Makeathon LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

The Robot Petting Zoo (RPZ) program engages students and educators in friendly making, coding, and design with a creative twist on the traditional hackathon. During an RPZ Makeathon, student groups create animatronic animals while learning empathic design thinking, teamwork, and engineering using cardboard, robotics kits, code, and craft supplies. Join us as we describe our experiences running RPZ Makeathons, and learn how you can run your own event.
