Outcomes Summary from Harlem Academy 2017
Students reported on:
The environmental harm of synthetic dyes; healthy alternatives of natural dyes
They used that to create hypotheses and design and run experiments.
Create simulations and use robotics to render fabric designs.
Create simulations and use them as guides for traditional methods.
Here measuring pH and temperature with Arduino-based sensors:
The batik bot:
Here the simulations are turned into patterns of string tied around a cylinder:
