From "Hack to Hallé"--Making a Robot Orchestra for the Hallé Orchestra
Moseley, Ainsley; White, Stephanie; Knowles, Mike
Primary Science, n145 spec iss p12-13 Win 2016-2017
As part of the celebration of Manchester being the European City of Science 2016, schools across the City were invited to take part in a Citizen-Engineering project, which set out a quest to make a recycled robot orchestra. It is a unique project, which is an experiment itself--to bring people together to create, collaborate and care for the planet. In this article, the authors who are teachers, discuss their experiences with their students creating robots for the orchestra and also analyze the positives and negatives of encouraging students to participate. In conclusion, the authors discuss how they can incorporate engineering into future curriculum.
