Musical Fruit and Screaming Pumpkins: October 27, 2018

Techtacular volunteers helped out at CoderDojo’s latest event: making musical fruit and screaming pumpkins! Students learned about electricity and how it flows through a circuit. Then, they applied this concept to making music by using fruit as part of the circuit.

They were able to experiment with different types of fruit, concluding that apples were better conductors of electricity than bananas. Who knew? By the end of class, each student decorated their own pumpkin and wrote a program for each pumpkin to scream when touched.
