Do you believe in ghosts? What about ghosts created with math? We created different projections that, combined, created a 3D image floating in the air.

Plant Doctors

Have you ever had a stuffy nose or cough? Those are signs that you’re feeling sick, but how can you tell when a plant is sick? Together, we became plant doctors – or plant pathologists – and diagnosed sick plants.

Flying By Instruments

Have you seen an airplane cockpit and wondered about all the information on the panel? Aircraft pilots rely on these instruments! Together, we flew a flight simulator and used instruments to pilot a plane in bad weather!
