Tensegrity Update and Weird Animal / Face Mugs

Today we finished painting our struts and we will be ready for construction of our tensegrity projects next week. The string we were using was not performing as we wished when we were using it like our rubber band models.

Some small bungee material will be tried next week. Hopefully this will help us conclude this project.

Next up will be one of our last projects, which will be a weird animal or face mug. Students were to come up with two uniques sketches of possible design ideas.

A demo of how to create the mug was also given. Students were asked to take notes of needed tools, and vocabulary to help them with their project next week.
