Hand-Made Constellations

The learning process at the American College of Sofia goes beyond just the theoretical knowledge our students gain in the classroom. This week in Astronomy Class our 12th graders constructed their own LED Constellation Kits. 

The LED Constellation Kit is a Maker Activity in the Student Computer Innovation and Fabrication Institute (SCIFI) which falls within the innovative approach in education at the College and supports students in developing practical skills and hands-on experience with different tools. Physics & Astronomy Teacher Christian Youngs and SCIFI Manager David Yordanov spent extra time in preparing the preliminary materials, design and production for the students in advance. At the end of class, the students took their own kits which are already shining in their rooms at home.
