image

December 27 – 30, 2012; noon – 4 pm

Bend, twist, light, sculpt and taste a new version of the holiday season. Workshops, demos, artist installations and food science explorations will present a wide variety of ways to engage and leave your mark on the holidays at NYSCI. Each day of ReMake the Holidays will focus on a different theme. Most activities are free with NYSCI admission. Some projects require a small materials fee.

A swing + falling water = Waterfall Swing

The Waterfall Swing is a 19’ tall steel swing set with a computer controlled interactive water plane, capable of making shapes and text. Using water released from solenoid valves, a plane is created in front of the swing rider, a sensor tells the machine the rider’s position as shapes and messages descend around the rider’s path.

Check out the Waterfall Swing this weekend at World Maker Faire, NYC.

No water yet but evidence of flowing water; probably salty.A great article to read while you check out @NYSCI’s Search for Life Beyond Earth exhibit. Via @iamweiss
