Learning in the Making with MakerED: Observation Machines

July 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT

Observation Machines


Have you ever looked under a microscope to see parts of the world not visible to the naked eye? How about through a telescope to gaze at objects far away and out of reach? Each of these technologies — we call them “observation machines” — helps you look closely at and explore the complexity of the world around you. Join us in building observation machines — from materials you have at home — to illuminate objects from nature in new and surprising ways.

Watch and make LIVE on the Family Maker Camp FB page or on the Make: Kids Youtube channel.

Materials list:
  • Anything transparent or see-through: could be a plastic bag, a plastic water bottle, thin paper, a magnifying lens, net, or sheer fabric
  • A source of light: this could be a flashlight, small LED, a lamp, or the sun shining through your window
  • Cardboard or another firm material, like foam
  • Tools for connecting & attaching, such as tape, glue, binder clips, or clothes pins
