Adventurer's Flashlight Project

Posted by Jen Jackson on November 9, 2015 at 3:40 PM


Moms of Adventurers: Please help your Adventurer come up with something to bring in that they would like to turn into a flashlight.

Here are the constraints: It needs to be reasonably easy to open with a space inside no smaller than 1 1/2 inches by 3 inches with the mouth of the opening being no narrower than 1 1/2 inches. And it must be something you don't want to preserve. I will be making holes in it. Lastly, it must be made of a non-conductive material.


Some examples:

An old but clean shoe

A plastic bottle or container

A small wooden box

A stuffed animal or puppet (no beans inside)

A plastic truck

A small cardboard box

An old landline cordless phone

A unique creation made of plastic canvas and/or duck tape

Anything else you can think of that fits the constraints


I need them this week so we can make our design plans then I can take them home and prep them for our final class of the semester.

This will be our final project of the semester. The class between this Tuesday and the final one, when we will build the flashlights, will be spent as kind of a makers studio day where they will be challenged to come up with their own problem to solve and use materials from my big box of "stuff we might want to use to make something someday" (which desperately needs thinning out) to build a prototype or model.
