February STEM Was All About Automatons. This automaton, made from a kit, was the inspiration for STEM this month.

It takes so much concentration to get things just right. Getting closer to launch time! Testing the cam to make sure it will spin correctly. Getting glue in the right place is very crucial to keeping the cam in the right location.
