Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Make a Big Square

Make a big square stencil.

Fill in the big square with light-colored paint.

Silkscreening paint works better. I wanted to do it fast, so I grabbed a can of spraypaint.
Now my shirt is really stiff.

I also lasercut a fine grid of points, because I was playing around with the laser cutter.
that's __totally__ unnecessary. Just tape off a square or something.

Step 2: Write on It!

Fill it in with your username, and instructables you've done.

Now the world knows that you are part of the instructables community!

    Perhaps she'll just draw LEDs on the shirt, that way they know that it is just marker..... or is it super high-tech explosives that look like marker??

    Can we see a picture of the whole thing? And maybe a little bit more of what you've included on it and why. It looks interesting.
