Earlier this week we had a very excited crowd at the Orange Branch Library coming to learn all about how to build a brush bot from Delaware County District Library Volunteer Jesse!

What's a brush bot you ask? It's an easy way to teach kids about working with basic electronics and thinking outside the box in minimalist "robot" design. All it requires is a toothbrush, wire cutters, foam double-stick tape, a small motor (can be found by searching "brush bot motor" or "bristle bot motor"), and a CR2032 3-volt battery. Watch the video below for a step-by-step tutorial and enjoy making your own!

We want to see you what you create! Send pictures or videos of your creations to
