This awesome Make It At Home Challenge submission comes from Joanna.  She did her own take on Hot Glue Molding to create this Luminescent Night Light enclosure that now lives in her car.  Thank you Joanna!If you want to learn how to create you own glowing sculptures out of hot glue then you should check out the Maker Space this weekend, Saturday May 17th and Sunday May 18th.  We will experimenting with different types of molding and casting techniques using hot glue and creating geometric modular paper sculptures.  Both the geometric and goopy will then be illuminated with some simple circuitry!  Check our Weekend Programs section at the top of the page for more information.

I hope you’re inspired by this wild glowing monolith, because it’s Wildcard Weekend  at NYSCI again, so get your hot glue guns out and make something!
