27jul(jul 27)9:00 AM30(jul 30)2:00 PMBorder Crossers - Robotic Art Workshop for Teens


Event Details

World-renowned artist Chico Macmurtie will be bringing his Border Crosser robots to El Paso in Fall of 2021, through an exhibition at the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at UTEP and through public events throughout the city in September and October.

In anticipation of this visit, El Paso’s Fab Lab is collaborating with the artist and the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts to host a free Robotic Art workshop for teens entering grades 9-12. The workshop is designed to engage and inspire students with little to no background knowledge of robotics, or coding. Through a series of design challenges, students will ultimately build and code their own miniature interactive art installation that mimics elements of the full scale Border Crosser. Students will desig and build their own robotic sculptures in a fun and collaborative environment. There is no cost to participate, and all materials are provided.
