Our homemade accelerometer.
We went from accelerometers in science to Salons of the Enlightenment in history today.
"...during the Enlightnment, many philosophers, artists, writers and other educated people would gather at salons in the homes of wealthy patrons (mostly women) and engage in intellectual conversations about the philosophy of the day...."
Daniel's assignment was to describe the salon that he would have had if he had lived in the 1700's..what it would look like, who he would invite and why, and what would some of the topics of discussion be?
Who would you invite? What would you talk about?
