Taking Apart and Putting Together (Mon 8/4)
Spent the morning putting some more finishing touches on the offline version of the STN. After lunch, we moved on to packing up Space Adventure, so that the classroom we are in could be painted once we leave, and then used during the upcoming school year. It came down pretty easily, despite some trouble with one of the joints, as well as figuring out the best way to store the screens. After that, we got some pool noodles from Walmart to use for the stand for the Science Sphere. The noodles bend out, allowing the sphere to balance more easily, and actually gives the sphere some give before falling. The one kind of sad note from this is that the noodles now take up almost half of the suitcase. There should still be plenty of room, but it feels strange that among all of the hundreds of dollars of equipment, cheap foam noodles now take up by far the most space.
