Title: Science time! (contains Dad brag)
Post by: mjg on February 26, 2020, 03:46:10 AM
Some of you might remember my kid's science project from a few years back, when he made a tremolo from some cleaning liquid, a motor and some copper wires.  Here was the build report: https://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=26038.0 (https://www.madbeanpedals.com/forum/index.php?topic=26038.0)

Anyway, fast forward to this year's science project.  He broke his arm at around the time he was thinking of what to do, and this got him thinking about building a robotic arm to play half of the guitar for him.  (He was in the plaster for 6 weeks - it was an impressive break)

The project won the school science fair, and the State science fair, and a few weeks ago we found out it won the National science fair for primary school kids.  So, yeah, Dad brag. 

Here's the video that he submitted as part of the entry:
