Makey Makey Quail Incubator Project: Need some help!
I have a Makey Makey
I have a laptop
I have an incubator full of quail eggs for a project with my elementary students.
My Goal: To create an interactive learning station while the eggs incubate.
I have diagrammed my plan, but need some help and guidance.
I want one cable to connect to a thermometer to to display internal temperate. I am not sure how to quite make this happen. The thermometer currently in use is not working so I am going to buy a new one and want to rig it with the Makey Makey so when pressed it will show the temperature.
I want the second cable to provide the bobwhite call of the quail when pressed.
I have no other thoughts for the rest of the cables, but am open to suggestions.
I need some feedback and guidance. I would like to make this happen this week so students in my building have a few weeks to test it out before they hatch and I move on to another interactive learning station.
So, fire away with some thoughts and ideas!
