Drum Wacker

James is doing the Lego Simple Machines Pack for science this year and it has been so much fun so far! The first couple of weeks have been learning about force and levers and building things from directions. Here is James' first unique design, made entirely from his imagination. It is a drum stick that hits a drum when he pulls on the string. This program was worth every penny!

Sarah-
Here is the link:

You have to buy the motors separately at bricklink.com, so plan on spending about $30 more than this to get the three or four motors you need.

We absolutely love this program!
