- Drop In and Do Night/Project Night/Open House - Every Thursday, 7-9 pm
- Soft Circuit Saturday – 2nd Saturday, 1-4pm. Next one is March 8.
Intro to Circuits
$35, Saturday March 15, 1-4 pm
Have you been tantalized by cool costumes & projects using LEDs, Arduinos, or EL-wire? Ever wondered what’s going on inside your computer, television, or vacuum cleaner?
Electricity permeates our modern existence, and learning your way around circuits is the first step in demystifying it. In this class, we’ll start with the very basics, teaching you how to identify common circuit components, use tools like multimeters and breadboards, read schematics and datasheets, and describe what’s going on with a few equations. You’ll build some simple circuits and go home with a mini-breadboard so you can tackle your own projects!
This class is suitable for ages 13+.
April: Light Hacking Weekend – Analog/Digital
Gardening Hacks & Arduino
May: Firefly Workshop
Plus: Demo nights each month featuring MAX/MSP, Raspberry Pi, and Processing & Arduino.
We are currently filling our calendar for 2014. If you have a class or event you would like to see (or help organize), please contact us!
We are a loosely organized group of volunteers, so we want to plan stuff that you’re interested in. Below is a list of classes we have held in the past with success, if you are interested in attending any of them, please leave a comment. Once we reach a critical mass we will make the class happen.
- Intro to Arduino
- Intro to Audio
- Intro to Sensors
- Intro to Soldering
- Intro to Circuits
- Recycled Electronic Jewelry
- Intro to Kinetic Sculpture
- Duct Tape Costuming
- LED Moonlit Flower
- Sex Toy Hacking Workshop

- Basic Web Development
Other class ideas we have never tried:
- LED Pop-up book making
- Clothes Hacking
- Nerf Gun Hacking
Do you have an idea for a class?
Is there something you want to learn that isn’t listed here? Do you want to teach something that would fit on this list? Leave a comment and we will try to make that happen too!
