Plant Wall

8 months ago
We built a plant wall to learn about using power tools and to make the air fresher because of Covid -19. "Collected all materials including wood, hooks and buckets Measured the length of the wood Sawed the wood to the right length Drilled 3 holes in each piece of wood Stain the wood Planted the plants Hung the plants on the wood with the hooks Hung the plant wall in school"
Our project involves a cross-curricular application of creative problem solving through 3D design. Students learned the basics of Tinkercad and 3D design. They each selected an animal to learn about and design. Students had the opportunity to engage in writing projects and apply geometric principles in addition to learning new technological skills.

LEO Project

LEO is an intelligent art installation that would serve as a signal light for the Riverview Arts Center to signal the end of intermission, but to also serve as interactive art in the RHS foyer. The intelligent chandelier will be made out of laser cut acrylic with LEDs controlled by custom made SAI boards and Rapsberry zeros.

LED Lightsaber

What if I combined two things I love into a fun project? "I created the lightsaber with fluorescent light tube packaging, a strip of neopixels, some paint, some wires and electronics, and 3D printed pieces. First, I coded the neopixels to turn on and off with a pin press using a Bboard and microbit. I then modeled the hilt using Tinkercad and 3D printed it in several pieces. Next, I painted the plastic with acrylic paint and paint markers, then coated it with modge podge to both seal in the paint and give it a more matte and glossy finish. I used hot glue to hold the plastic together and soldered the wires together, and did the same with an on/off switch. I attached the wires to the Bboard, as they did not need to be soldered into place. Lastly, the tube fitted snugly into the rainguard, finishing the lightsaber."

“No Shanks!”

People deserve to be able to go outside on their own without fear of all the terrible things that could happen while living alone and my innovative design allows people to do that. I started off using tinkercad to create a cat shape for the housing of my project. I eventually built it up and created a cover that can easily clip on and off. So the sound device can fit safely inside. I have a small hole at the end for cords to come out through, and an easy way to hold the device. Next, I started coding in Python and after a lot of research and trial and error, I got both my button and buzzer working on the GPIO. It is still a work in progress, but it is coming along very well.
