A fruit fly experiment that also doubled as an interactive instrument. The readings from the experiment were taken live and synthesised into musical notes. Displayed at a Science Fair, children were able to ‘play’ the current state of the experiment. Participants were able to compare the sounds made by the different dependant variables against the sounds made by the control conditions.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
