Starting the Arduino interactive garden mural

We are starting to paint our garden, designed and facilitated by Duxbury artist, Sally Dean, on the plastic blue partition wall. The garden elements are being 3D printed by the kids and teens and today we will begin learning from Kevin Osborn, how to write Arduino code to make the servos that power the interactivity work!

This is a big, on-going project, which is just the kind of thing we feel sparks creativity and BIG thinking in a Makerspace.


Tools and equipment:

  1. Portable Partition from Minnesota company
  2. Acrylic paints, brushes, drop clothes, etc.
  3. Gridding out the garden design with a wax pencil
  4. Arduino kits from Sparkfun
  5. Lots of extra sensors and stuff from Adafruit





Riley thought to glue gun details on that she had 3Doodled.
