This month in Science Club at BUGC, students created Scribble Bots! Students spent a bit of time learning about electric motors and then they had the opportunity to use them. Students hooked the motors up to batteries and went to work. Students were quite innovative in how they were able to get their bots to move. Some students even put their bots head to head in a Battle of the Scribble Bots! Science Club at BUGC was made available to 7th and 8th grade students. It meets once a month and is sponsored by Mrs. Lanoue and Mrs. Soucy.
