Central Saint Martins science communication workshop

November 2014 

Design Science Director and CSM Lecturer Anne Odling-Smee was joined by DS Associate Ed Prosser to run a science communication project for students from the MA Communication Design course at Central Saint Martins.

We briefed the class of 30+ students to propose and produce an interactive / participatory solution to communicate one of the scientific concepts listed below:

Algorithm
Conductor
Data
Diffraction
Diffusion
Electron
Experiment
Galaxy
Gravity
Infinity
Ketone
Kinetic energy
Osmosis
Random
Refraction
Spectroscopy
Spectrum
Ultraviolet ray
Wavelength
X-ray

KINETIC ENERGY: Sooeun Kim experimented with arduino to explore how communicating kinetic energy could be applied to helping conserve the environment
EXPERIMENT: Felix Guth learned arduino for the first time to explore his chosen theme.
GRAVITY: Di Cao produced a movie to present his explorations.
RANDOMNESS: Namrata Bhatter invited participants to arrange coloured squares, leading her to question whether true randomness exists.
REFRACTION: Kyung Won Yoo’s model used infra red light beams to create a game that invited users to create ‘refracted’ letterforms.
SPECTRUM: Zhiwen Tang produced physical outcomes that be then used as props to create a movie.
REFRACTION: Neils David Sebastian used the coding programming Processing for the first time to demonstrate how refraction works within quantum mechanics.
