As part of the Miller STEAM project, participants made their own cardboard catapults.
Universum Mobili is an art + science wonder cart developed for the WOW Festival this year through CuriousWorks ReFILL Program.
Created by young people 12- 13 years from Miller Technology High School, it got pretty nice feedback from kids and parents alike.
“It’s just like a mini-Questacon” “My kid keeps coming back – fascinated by everything”
“How do we get this program happening in our school?”
Thanks to the vision of Claudia Chidiac (WOW Festival Curator) and Sally Atkins (MTHS Student Voice Advocate) and Sarah Emery, lead artist of ReFILL.
All the artists and teachers on ReFILL strive to bring wonder, opportunity and fun to the young people of Liverpool.
Young artists in the ReFill program imagined themselves in outer space to create these strange self-portraits.
The ReFill program has been full steam ahead this year. Take a look behind the scenes at some of the wonderful things that happened in Term One.
Spirographs combine art and maths. The patterns that they create depend on three variables: the radius of the fixed disc, the radius of the revolving disc, and the location of the pen on the moving disc. Today, students at Miller experimented with spirographs by creating as many different patterns as they could in a short period of time.
Young people from Miller Technology High School had their first taste of performing for camera as they explored the different objects inside their school bag.
