As we all know, it's inevitable that robots will take over the world and rule us all. Clearly the only way to prepare for this onslaught is to make ourselves blend in with robots and hope that they will be fooled when the time comes. Therefore, obviously, this month's CraftBar we will be making robot hands (Version 1.0)!

We will be using simple materials to make robotic hands with enough dexterity to perform basic tasks (plus they make fabulous back scratchers!). If you can't beat them, join them.

Join the Science Museum of Western Virginia on Wednesday August 14th at Big Lick Brewing Co. Activity starts at 6pm and there is a $5 charge for supplies. Museum members receive FREE SUPPLIES if they bring their membership cards.
