Interactive Megaphone

About This Project

The Interactive Megaphone is an installation made by young people, expressing their ideas about their right to play as described in the article 31 of the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child.

The Interactive Megaphone is a big interactive tetrahedral structure made out of smaller tetrahedral megaphones created by young people participating in the festival.

Young people will explore maker culture and digital making by creating their very own tetrahedral megaphone. As they create their megaphones, they will turn conductive paint into a sensor and learn basic programming in Arduino. By embedding digital tools into the creation this larger interactive installation. Young people will have the chance to play with technology; using it as a creative tool and means of self-expression as they work together towards a common goal.
