Assets Lower and High School Students Unite to Build Set for 3D Projection Mapping @ Waikiki Lights Gala - Massive Fundraiser for Waikiki Community Foundation
5th and 6th grade students in Carol Uyeda's and Tim Humphry's math classes teamed up with 7th and 8th grade students in the Design and Entrepreneurship enrichment along with Jon Pennington's high school mentorship students (shown left) to build a set for 3D Projection Mapping. The set was showcased at the Waikiki Lights Gala, a massive fundraiser held by the Waikiki Community Center to aid underprivileged children.
Students bring their ideas to life using modern technologies such as laser-cutting, 3D printing and electronics.
Students operate our three Glowforges, cutting-edge laser cutters. First designing objects with a sketch or digital tools then, commanding the laser to cut, engrave or score materials according to their preferences. We cut materials such a wood, fabric, rubber, acrylic, plexiglass, leather, and cardboard.
Students operate our Prusa 3D printers, voted best in class by Make Magazine for 2017 and 2018. They use CAD Software to design personalized objects of their choice, choosing the color and type of plastic suited for the item. Students build prototypes based on their ideas, and share them with family.
Students program Arduino microcontrollers and build circuits with motors, steppers, and LEDs that can react to motion, sound or light. They learn basic wiring and coding inputs and outputs. They combine their circuits with laser-cut or 3D printed items to create things like an infinity mirror cube!
