Stop! Don't throw that soda can in the trash! Why would you do that when you can turn it into a robot?

Discover the FUN of recycling while learning all about science and technology with the 4M® Green Science Tin Can Robot. Follow the simple instructions to easily assemble all the pieces, slide that recycled can into the body rings, install the batteries, and switch on the motor. Just like that, turn a metal can into a walking, wobbling, bog-eyed robot that can move! It can be transformed to become a robotic monster too. Cans can be cool! Kit includes parts and instructions; just add a "can" do attitude! Watch your child's delight and sense of accomplishment with the robot they create!

Kids get to discover all kinds of fun facts about technology and science as they read through the included manual. Learn about how your new robot works, how cams work, why the can makes that strange buzzing sound, plus all kinds of interesting stuff about resonance. See? Isn't this better than sending that can off to the dump?
