Bird Feeder 3000: 3D Print a VR/AI/IoT Bird Feeder

It's a 3D printed bird feeder, virtual reality camera, and AI-powered IoT science station...in one! In this wonderfully geeky and fun hands-on workshop, you'll build your own 3D printed bird feeder and weather station. You'll view real birds in your own backyard in 360 video, use IoT-technology to collect weather data in real time, use AI to identify exotic bird species, and submit this valuable data to biologists who track bird populations and migration patterns. How cool is that?
