On Sunday 12/9, UTeach Maker joined with students from Topper Teach at St. Edwards University to create programmable snow globes using circuit playground technology. A grant from The Powell Foundation made this partnership possible. Students from both programs worked together all afternoon making their unique creations. From snow globes featuring Wonder Woman and The Hulk, to those featuring Rudolf and Santa, each was a unique and personal creation.
While making the globe, the makers investigated of various adhesives and uv resins, the density and viscosity of the water and glyerin mixture used in their snow globes, and they tinkered with elements of artistic composition. Circuit playgrounds featured the block coding used to program the lights and music for the final product.
