Gears will be turning for students in our BotShop WorkShop, geared to offer an approachable exploration of engineering and mechanics. Workshop instructor Eugene will guide participants through the process of designing and constructing their own robots, using a range of recycled materials including wood and rope. Participants will be anything but on autopilot as this program gets the creative wheels whirring.
Eugene Zeleny grew up in Boston, graduating from Northeastern University with a BA in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Technological Entrepreneurship. He has been a freelance woodworker since 2009, working out of his Brighton woodworking studio, and focuses on creating functional art such as furniture, fashion accessories, interior decor, and humorous novelty items. He brings a love of crafting and free-form construction in a variety of accessible materials to the classroom, hoping to inspire ever-growing heights of creative freedom in his students.
