Soldering and Post-It Speakers at Make-a-tion
We continued our Summer Make-a-tion series in true Discotech style by setting up several workshop stations which allowed everyone to move around as they liked.
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.
