- Laser cut wood shell
- Foam for outer layers, that students cut to specs based on shell
- One LED light, color of choice
- One coin cell battery (CR2032)
- Scissors and Glue
Prior to the assembly of our pocket flashlights, students saw some examples of light painting with the pocket flashlight. I used the Slow Shutter Cam app on iOS for the photos. I also brought them into PIRL Terrace to see a laser cut in process. We discussed what's going on as the laser both engraves and cuts the wood.
Students then selected their options for color LED, color of foam, and went to work putting everything together. Here are some photos of students light painting and the work in progress. Thank you to Mr. Macias for some amazing photos!
