Today was a full day of experimenting with arduino boards and a wide variety of input sensors, including light, pressure, movement, temperature etc. The morning was a step by step introduction with some challenges like trying to remember stuff about electrical circuits at school! The workshop was expertly led by Romain Meunier and the afternoon included lots of experiments with each group of students managing to produce some effective interaction.
For most students this was simply about exposure, exploring something outside of their normal experience. For other students these lessons will feed directly into their practice as their MA course develops.
