Making STEM Equitable With Beautiful Ideas, Affordable Projects and Serious Play

Ed Surge – Bruce Anderson

“One of Haynor’s favorite projects—combining learning, affordability and “super fun”—is the Strobe Goggles. “It’s a fun way of mixing the notions of goofiness and fashion with principles of light and persistence of vision, which is what makes it all work,” he explains. “This project started at the Mission Science Workshop, and what we were exploring is how you view things that oscillate or repeat. We were looking at guitar strings and the way they wobble. You can do some amazing things when you put a strobe light on guitar strings and you can see these amazing wave patterns emerge that would be impossible to see otherwise.” So Haynor went looking for a way to create a fun, stylish, and inexpensive tool that might give every student access to the strobe effect.”(more)
