Combining the pumpkin carving process with electronics allowed students to be very creative. The result was particularly rewarding, and students were motivated to learn the coding, mechanics, and electrical engineering of Arduino which, before the inclusion of art, may have been viewed with less interest.
Getting an early understanding and experience of these topics is extremely valuable for students going into STEAM careers. With the high versatility of platforms such as Arduino, these STEAM projects can be run in collaboration with subjects across the entire curriculum.
