Google+ Space + Solar Art

These cold drink coasters were based on the idea of a aurora borealis above Iceland.  I’ve always been amazed by the aurora borealis after viewing it as a small girl.  The science behind this is quiet amazing.  Students often gaze with amazement at the colours and the vastness.  This short informative video will help set an introduction and help with the concept of charged particles entering the atmosphere and excited atoms in the air creating the colors you see.

Welcome to Resin Art Melbourne

Resin Art Melbourne is an artist venture.

It is based on my need to enhance my Year 8 course: “Space- Origins of the universe”.  Each piece that is created is based on a NASA space image.  Descriptions of how to create this, and where in the galaxy it exists will be included.

The image above was based on the ice caps as seen from the International Space Station (ISS) and as tweeted by Scott Kelly (an astronaut and personal hero) whilst onboard the ISS.
