Students got to try their hand at animating using software called Dragonframe, and here are the results!
After an afternoon of exploring circuits by building a battery out of oranges and completing copper foil circuits, students delved into the world of squishy circuits!
Squishy circuits were developed by the Playful Learning Lab at the University of St. Thomas. In essence, the wires of a circuit are replaced by conductive playdough!
You can learn more about them at this site.
On Thursday, students had a conversation about permanence and impermanence by looking at the works of Ana Mendieta and Andy Goldsworthy. They then went down to the river bank to try their hand at sculptures made from natural materials!
The results were these awesome and unique sculptures that they left behind.
Silverton Makers are just getting started with a summer full of exploration, experimentation and creativity!
