Sometimes I Make Poor Choices

Today I let kids play with a tone generator and an oscilloscope.  The idea is that they can see how changing the Frequency and Amplitude of a sound change the wave.  Below is the audio from one of my four classes.

A Business is Born

We have a screen.  Today we taped it up and started to learn the process of printing shirts.
Some Squeegee work.  Squeegee is such a cool word.

Playing with Sound

Today we start looking at sound.  I had the kids use twistedwave.com.  It is a web based audio editor to record a sound and then manipulate the wave to see how the wave is affected.

Then we fail.

Today we attempted to burn a screen.  We set up our screen, set it up correctly, and exposed it.  Round 2 tomorrow.
