Eyebeam Fellow Kaho Abe worked with Australian students from the Christ Church Grammar School teaching them about potato voltage, electrical currents, and how to boost either of these to create tone generators. They also used transistors, dials, and photo resistors to create other tone generators for a unique orchestral experience.  At the end of the workshop, students participated in a Potato Orchestra using the devices that they created.
