Projects from Steampunk Freshman Seminar 2018

This week, students in my Fall 2018 “First-Year Seminar” on steampunk turned in their first round of creative projects.

The assignment asks them to “steampunk a common object.” As you can see from the photo below, I got some clever responses including steampunk “blue books” for final exams, hair salon fixtures, water bottles (with analog temperature gauge), and light sticks (for those Victorian EDM raves).

I have a particularly smart and fun bunch of first-year students this year, though I wish we’d had more time; two sessions of the class were canceled due to smoke from the Northern California fires.
