Medusa workshop

Πως φτιάχνεται μία μέδουσα από ένα πλαστικό μπουκάλι, που αντιδρά στο ανθρώπινο άγγιγμα; Στο εργαστήριο αυτό θα κατασκευάσουμε μία διαδραστική μέδουσα με ένα arduino, μια καινοτόμο τεχνολογία που χρησιμοποιείται κατά κόρον σε καλλιτεχνικά διαδραστικά έργα, ψηφιακά LEDs και αισθητήρες και οπτικές ίνες και συγχρόνως θα συζητήσουμε για την μόλυνση των θαλασσών από πλαστικά και τι μπορούμε να κάνουμε για να την σταματήσουμε.
