• Radios for Ecuador

    For our second Project as Action, we studied sound. We assembled our own radios and examined uses that they could have in countries around the world. My group looked at Ecuador, and explored how radios could be manipulated for the convenience of alpaca farmers. This way, in cases of extreme weather or day-to-day isolation, they …

  • Spectrograph

    For the first project as action in our Math and Science class Light + Sound class, we built a  simple spectrograph.  A spectrograph, in our case, was a cardboard box that helped us refract light and see the full electromagnetic spectrum. Scientists use them often with telescopes to record the spectra. We used the lens …

  • Wind Turbine

    For our third project as action in my Design + Engineering class, we created wind turbines. After a visit from the CEO of Windonics, who brought us a small wind turbine and discussed how they work with us. We were inspired to create our own turbine using creative propeller shapes and various household items such …

  • Solar Panel

    For our second Project as Action in Design + Engineering, we were given the opportunity to build solar water heaters because we were studying the force of solar and how it is useful. It explored how we can use such simple materials like aluminum foil and cardboard boxes to conduct heat and let water boil …
