Lost Sounds : Nurturing Digital Naturalists, June 2019 (74 images)

Class 3 have been helping Liz Edwards with her research project, which combines study of the natural world with art work and technology. First we visited Birk Bank to make recordings of different bird calls. Back at school we made prints of the birds we had seen using conductive ink. We then made circuits using Raspberry Pi computers. Lastly we edited our sound files using Audacity and wrote programs with Scratch 2 so that the bird calls would play when the pictures were touched. Come into the entrance hall to try out our display! Thank you so much to Liz for a very enjoyable week and to Lucy and Ben, who helped her.
