For this project, I took inspiration from a leaky faucet. It keeps track of time by dripping once per second, the water goes from the bottom to the top every hour, and the color of the water changes from blue to green-brown throughout a 24 hour time period. It was definitely a more difficult project than I originally anticipated, as I had to draw on and combine a lot of concepts we have learned throughout the class. The part that I had the most trouble with was getting a new drop to drip at every second.
