Making the Abstract Concrete


During Engineering Week at the end of February, the Creative Automata Lab hosted an onslaught of visitors of all ages. We showed several projects representing the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey relationship, a mechanical integrator using simulated sand, and the use of force feedback in embodied interactions with the distributive law of algebra. A video was produced from the projects, and students are interviewed for their perspectives. The video can be seen by using this link or by clicking on the photo of the ATEC Building shown above.
