STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, & Mathematics) education isn't just for students at the high school level. By working collaboratively we can be sure to inspire the next generation of students to pursue STEAM fields and be the makers of tomorrow.
In the Spring 2014 we set out to use parts from a Northwestern Lehigh Education Foundation grant to make a rig to take photos of eggs that were being incubated and hatched at the Elementary School.
A Raspberry Pi computer and 3D printed parts were used to mount the computer and camera to a tripod. Code was then written to take a picture at a set time interval and upload them to the web so that the students and community could keep an eye on them at night and on the weekends.
Wonder what the chicks are doing? Depends on the time of year but hopefully you can find them HERE
