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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
