The Animatronics Workshop is a learning experience in which kids conceive and construct a robotic show. They write the story, build the robotic mechanisms and the set, perform voice acting, and create the motion tracks. This provides a deep cross-disciplinary experience, teaching participants how to think creatively across traditional areas of expertise. In an intensive three-day prototype workshop in summer 2013, 14 high school students created a three-character show.
