PKers create shadow caster "monsters"

In tech class this week, PKers learned how to use age-appropriate maker space tools—glue sticks, scissors, and hole punchers—to create “monsters.” They took paper scraps that had been cut on the laser machine and used their tools to combine the scraps into a shadow caster monster. After creating the monsters, they cast their monster’s shadow onto a screen and learned how shadows change size depending on how close the object is to the light source. They loved making their monsters “huge and scary” by putting the casters very close to the light source.
