In the participatory design workshop "über Leben" (about life), the students of the Erich Kästner School developed an artistic and technological position to explore the coexistence of human and non-human life forms. Inspired by animals, the students of the 11th grade explored different movement behaviors, materials, and mechanisms. In addition, the students learned how to use a microcontroller, servo motor, and ultrasonic sensor to create an interactive artefact.
