TDDE 131 Week 8: Project Planetaria Devices


6:10pm – 7:30pm: Project Planetaria Devices

ppdWe made Project Planetaria Devices!  Michael led students through the basic electronics, soldering skills and talked about the “stupidest possible chip. ” Working with capacitors, watch batteries, potentiometers, photo capacitors, and toggle switches students created their own devices to emit light and audio.  They “played” these interments by the whole class holding hands to run a current through the whole class, and performed a Cage-inspired score with individual PPDS.

Then everyone got a kit to take home to make more!
