Students from the Georgia Institute of Technology present interactive installations developed for Trees Atlanta’s TreeHouse. Each playful installation explores a different environmental concept within an urban ecosystem; including birds, bees, pollination, gardening, ecological succession, and more. The installations invite the user (specifically children) to engage in physical and sensory interaction with an environmental learning goal.

Trees Atlanta and Georgia Tech invites the public to participate in a Student Showcase of these original designs on Wednesday, January 27 from 11 am to noon at the TreeHouse. The student designers will demonstrate each installation. We encourage you to bring young learners and explorers! Please RSVP for this free event below.

The installations were developed in the Interactive Products Design Lab (IPDL) as projects in the ‘Design of Interactive Environments’ course led by Matthew Swarts. Each piece uses special carpet tiles donated by Interface that harvest energy from walking and jumping. The tiles are collaboratively developed at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) through a project with the NASA Kennedy Space Center. The Trees Atlanta education team is proud to have provided feedback and to host this project.
