KID Maker Challenge: Kinetic Art

Over the next few months leading up to the Silver Spring Maker Faire we will be challenging all young makers to stretch their minds.  These challenges give kids who operate under a “maker” mindset the chance to create new projects by applying scientific, technological, math, artistic and engineering design concepts. Kinetic Art Challenge:

Kinetic art is art that moves. The most common examples are three-dimensional sculptures and figures such as mobiles that move naturally or are machine operated. The moving parts are generally powered by wind, a motor or the observer.

Your challenge is to make a piece of artwork that incorporates movement to make the piece visually interesting.  When you are finished, post about your results on our Facebook page!
