In this workshop, the students were introduced to the basic concepts of algorithmic design and interactive electronics while they designed a series of reactive posters. The posters were designed using a specific Processing’s library created for this workshop. After, the students changed the visual features of posters’ elements using data from the physical environment. These data were gathered using an Arduino microcontroller connected to a potentiometer, a photoresistor and a button.
