We were commissioned by Chabot Space Center to participate in a project titled Green Machine Design Challenge which involved asking kids visiting the Climate Lab exhibition to draw their ideas of helping us to live more sustainably. We were provided with hundreds of great ideas and had to choose one. That drawing was the “Rainmaker” a design by 8 year old Dylan from Danville. His idea was to build a solar powered machine that would suck up ocean water, remove the salt , turn the water into steam that would seed the clouds (“rainbow clouds”) and create a place for kids to play in the rain. From our studio, second hand stores, hardware stores, and in the street we found materials to assemble the Rainmaker.
