Soldering and Post-It Speakers at Make-a-tion
|August 22, 2013||Posted by Gergana Slavova under Make-a-tion 2013, Workshops||
We had our classic soldering workshop which teaches the basics behind using a soldering iron. The project revolved around putting together a small robot pin by attaching its eyes (LEDs) and a holder for a small coin-cell battery to the body.
I’m not going to say people learned a lot, but I think people learned a lot.
And the finished product:
Pretty snazzy, right?
And if you think this isn’t the most fun you can have in 2 hours on a Saturday, we also taught people how speakers work by making our own mini versions using origami paper, speaker wire, and a magnet.
We discovered this jem of a workshop at this year’s Allied Media Conference in Detroit. Props to Mt Elliott Makerspace for being awesome.
