STEM-tastic Saturday attendees
Bob Partington is an artist, engineer, and inventor like no other! His inventions include a secret graffiti briefcase, a 300-pound garlic crusher, a paper airplane gattling gun, a pizza guillotine, and the World’s Slowest Rube Goldberg. (See video below)
He hosted his own television show, the History Channel’s Thing-a-ma-Bob, and is being featured on TBS’s new series America’s Greatest Makers. (See video at right)
His work is on view in OK GO’s deliriously mind-bending music video The Writing’s on the Wall, and he was the recipient of the Creativity Award from Odyssey of the Mind for combining art, science, technology, math and engineering in his unique inventions.
Bob’s most recent invention is featured in Volvo’s “Highway Robbery” ad for their new electric car. Watch a behind the scenes video to see how he created a device to steal energy from every car on the road to power the Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine. Awesome!
