Science on a Sphere Experimentation at the Orlando Science Center

Most of the imagery that comes with the system has to do with weather, planets, and other such things (and is very cool in and of itself). I’m seeing what I can do that’s a little more outside the box for the Orlando Mini Maker Faire. Here are a few teaser shots from yesterday’s time figuring out what was possible…
