2015 Day 3: Spiraling Spirographs

Today at camp we got to do several different projects. First we got to finish assembling our icosahedron structures that were made out of Popsicle sticks.


Next we got to use spirographs which was a first time for most of us.
 

After that we got to do string art with toothpicks and cork board.

To end the day off we got to work on our knitting project. Mrs. Nichole showed us how to spin yarn too.

But then there was a session of using giant gears to create spirographs on the stairs of the College of Education…

Here are the instructional materials from today:

  1. Popsicle stick Icosahedron sculpture; more math info about icosahedrons
  2. Experimenting with graph theory and hypocycloids (more math info about pirographs)
  3. Spirograph necklace with string and handmade jigs
  4. Casting on and knitting small cell phone purse using a garter stitch technique (check out this info for extra help and terms). Mrs Nichole made a great video to help identify how to successfully create each “unit.”
