Tinker the Robot was created to be taken apart, put back together, colored on, programmed and just tinkered with. Invented by Kay Yang, who spent most of her childhood taking things apart and sometimes putting them back together, she wanted to create a toy that was designed to be tinkered with.
Tinker the Robot is a robot friend that teaches girls and boys about electronics and programming! Have fun and create crafts with Tinker the Robot at this year’s OC Mini Maker Faire 2015!
We had an astromech droid and robots.
We had cupcakes and Quadcopters.
We had things in motion… Cecil the SeeSaw and Nick on his home made powered skateboard.
We had music from Jason with his Cigar Box Guitars and the sounds of 3D printers.
DAT Space ran a Learn to Solder Booth.
What a Great Day!
Someone pointed out this video to us on YouTube!

Do you know a youngster 7 years or older that likes Legos? How about robots? What about both together!
Every summer Mathobotix hosts a day camp program at the Beall Center for Art + Technology for budding engineers teaching the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering and math using teamwork and Lego components.
This year they are opening their doors on Saturday to offer a great one day program at the OC Mini Maker Faire! Price is included with your ticket!
Sign-ups are open to kids 7 years and up. Go to the Beall Ticket Booth any time between 10:00am and 1:45pm to sign-up for the 2 hour workshop which begins at 2:00pm in the Beall. At 4:00pm the kids can put their Sumo-bots to the test against each other in the Sumo-bot Competition at the amphitheater!
