Gorgeous Photos of DIY Science Experiments #makereducation #artuesday
Artist Caleb Charland’s most recent work captures beautiful moments from DIY science experiments with color photos, from Wired:
In the past, we’ve seen Charland experiment with light bulbs and candles, but his newest fascination is with a fine powdered dust that glows in the dark. Pieces like Pouring Light, shows a purplish glow coming from what looks like wall-mounted lights, but it’s actually the product of hours of pouring glow in the dark dust onto two slanted pieces of metal. The camera captured the light dust as it tumbled through a channel into a receptacle. Charland would pour the dust through the same path over and over again to create a vaporous glow that was strong enough to show up on film.
Each Tuesday is EducationTuesday here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts about educators and all things STEM. Adafruit supports our educators and loves to spread the good word about educational STEM innovations!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
