Designing TREXI and Automaton
Task 1: Design and colour the TREXI according to a theme, a competition organised by SP.
Automata is the plural form of automaton, a self-operating machine.
Task 2: Design an Automation
Click to learn about the mechanism used to create an automaton.
Click to understand the process of designing an automaton.
Read the competition details before embarking on the design of the automaton.
*Participants should generate a storyline of their Automata, for example what story is it telling, what sports or performing arts is it promoting, etc. and think of what mechanism(s) can be used to deliver/drive the story. They should also make simple sketches of their design with basic dimensions.
