ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
By gabrielle | Published: December 14, 2022
This week’s area of focus is ENGINEERING. Snowflakes are magical, beautiful, and complicated mini structures of ice. Let’s build our own from q-tips!
You’ll need the following:
- Q tips
- Felt or paper
- Sparkles or glitter (optional)
- Cut your q-tips up in different sizes
- Start assembling them to make a snowflake pattern
Once you like your pattern, add glue onto the back of the q-tip and place them onto your felt/paper to form a snowflake pattern.
Snowflakes are nature’s own engineering phenomenon. They are all unique and made from water droplets freezing in the sky. Some data engineers even study snowflakes to find trends in certain regions.
