Unfortunately the paper we used to project the sun onto ignited, so we resorted to a cup of tea, on the bottom of which we had the most beautiful small-scale projection of our beloved partial eclipse.
Imagine the looks on the faces of bystanders watching a bunch of students applying some creative engineering. ;-)
