Making is Electric!

Maker Carl F. created a Slayer Exciter using copper wire, a  a 2n2222a transistor, a 22kOhm resistor, and “a lot of magnet wire.” Carl mentioned that he created the air-cored electrical transformer as a demonstration for Robotics Club to show students what is possible when cobbling materials together. Hopefully this magical-maker display of electrical ingenuity inspires curious makers to take the leap with electronics.IMG_1176

Fairy Dress

A student created a fairy dress for her final project for theater class. The assignment was to design a costume and she chose to bring her creation to life by sewing it life-size!

It started as an idea, a sketch…

And it became this!

She sewed fabric flowers to the top section of the dress as well as the tulle, which creates the illusion that flowers are floating on a sea of pink. Nice work!

If anyone else is interested in making clothes, we have a mannequin in the makerspace!
