Triple Helix art installation using Adafruit parts #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/triple-helix-art-installation-using-adafruit-parts-arttuesday/

Thanks to Ryan for sending in his cool double helix art project! He writes:

Just sending over a cool project I have put together using knowledge gained from Adafruit, Instructables, Scanlime, and my own programming and building experience.

It’s name is Trilix (“Try – Lix” like triple helix), and the structure is three steel spiral bent rods affixed to two wood panels that are stained and poly’d. Attaching the two wood panels is another stained and poly’d wooden dowel in the center. It is placed on a stool to make it more at eye level and allows the electronics to be hidden underneath.

Helio curve kinetic installation by Reuben Margolin for Hyundai #ArtTuesday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/helio-curve-kinetic-installation-by-reuben-margolin-for-hyundai-arttuesday/

Via urdesign.

As part of the ‘Sculpture in Motion’ project, Hyundai as unveiled a large-scale kinetic installation designed by California-based artist Reuben Margolin at the opening of 2015 Milan Design Week, celebrating the relationship between movement in the natural and automotive worlds. Helio Curve recreates the movement of an ocean wave by suspending 400 open-celled tongue-and-groove wooden blocks within a five-meter cube, each block linked by string to an electrically-powered metal drive.

Android Controlled Arduino Bluetooth Panzer #Arduino

Remote Control cars are fun to drive around the room or wandering the house. What could be more fun of it? When you have the visibility as if you are riding in it. A wireless IP camera is the answer.

DIY Cheap Flying LEGO Quadcopter
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/diy-cheap-flying-lego-quadcopter/


Make a cheap quadcopter with LEGOs. via instructables

_Ever needed an excuse to start building Lego again? Now is the time! Turns out Lego bricks can be used to build a perfect symmetrical frame for your quadcopter! And… it’s super cheap.
I used Lego Technic because it has holes in the bricks. You can mount the motor’s with tie wraps through the holes and it’s an ideal weight reduction. For the motor’s and flight controller I used parts from the famous Hubsan X4._

Interested…? Then dust of those Lego bricks and start building!

Reformatting The Future of College #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/reformatting-the-future-of-college-makereducation/

Graeme Wood at the The Atlantic published an interesting piece that explores the methods of the Minerva Project, which is looking to change the format of higher education.

Bonabeau led the class like a benevolent dictator, subjecting us to pop quizzes, cold calls, and pedagogical tactics that during an in-the-flesh seminar would have taken precious minutes of class time to arrange. He split us into groups to defend opposite propositions—that the cod had disappeared because of overfishing, or that other factors were to blame. No one needed to shuffle seats; Bonabeau just pushed a button, and the students in the other group vanished from my screen, leaving my three fellow debaters and me to plan, using a shared bulletin board on which we could record our ideas. Bonabeau bounced between the two groups to offer advice as we worked. After a representative from each group gave a brief presentation, Bonabeau ended by showing a short video about the evils of overfishing. (“Propaganda,” he snorted, adding that we’d talk about logical fallacies in the next session.) The computer screen blinked off after 45 minutes of class.

Water Rocket Launcher for Science Fun #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/water-rocket-launcher-for-science-fun-makereducation/

This project tutorial from educator Mccay on instructables is great for a classroom project, especially as the weather gets nice out! Water rocket launcher activities are always a fun time and this tutorial is designed by teachers, for teachers.

Last year (2013/14), I taught 2nd grade science at IDEA Allan Academy in Austin Texas. When I was handed the assignment, I wanted to do more than lecture and provide worksheets for the subject. Science, like most subjects had to be taught with hands on examples where students would gain more from personal experiences rather than filling out multiple choice answer sheets. As a year-end project, I offered the grade an opportunity to construct water rockets (was a very big hit school wide) and for a selected few, a chance to hold the title of Flight Engineer.

What Playgrounds Look Like Around the World #makereducation
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/05/05/what-playgrounds-look-like-around-the-world-makereducation/

Last week, Wired posted about photographer James Mollison‘s recent work Playground. How we play and how we learn aren’t all that different. It’s interesting to see the varied approaches to playground design from around the world and consider the many factors that contribute to their making.

Interesting to read article. It offers some perspective. It is also riddled with advertisment. You know when places that lack obvious advertisement exist and used by many (G+ for example) you really can't be pushing all those ads on people. I for example just marked this Wire web site as place not to go to.
