DIY Electronics!

In this workshop, you’ll learn about basic electronics and get an introduction to circuit prototyping. Together, we'll build projects that make light patterns and cool noises as we explore LEDs, integrated circuits, resistors, capacitors, transistors and more! This is a hands-on learning experience with minimal theory and almost no math. Once you become familiar with the components, you’ll be able to rebuild and modify your projects, as well as make 3D sculptural electronics. You’ll receive all the parts and tools you'll need to participate from home, as well as the know-how to incorporate household materials into your projects.
