Do you want to generate electricity through a series of controlled falls? Do you wear shoes? Wow are you in luck. Join this super casual edu-worka-chat.

In the first part of this session, I will go over the basics of piezoelectric tiles and how they can be used to passively harness the energy we spend by walking. We'll then dive into some design considerations and workshop s0me applications attendees think up.

The second half will be a collaborative design effort in improving the design of and applying the technology to attendees relevant interests. An interest will be provided for you if you cannot provide one.
