Two students are working together to design and build a motion sensing gumball machine, powered by an arduino, PIR sensor and servo motor. They have used wood and glass for the most part, but have 3D designed a special release mechanism, which they just printed out this week to test.
Two other students are each making their own name in lights, a project that's been done before, but this time they are adding speakers into the design. There are two more LED projects, a night light that started out as a puzzle, and an LED Cube using 64 interconnected LEDs.
Students are creating rocket launchers, skateboard ramps, laptop stands, wooden charging stations and wave machines. They are building Retro Pi gaming machines, portable gaming controllers, and a prototype light sensing mini blind.
I am excited about the progress each and every student is making and so look forward to their final products. To check out their work on a weekly basis, read more on the student blog.
