Event description

Description

The workshop is intended for people with little or no experience of electronics to start to develop practical skills that will be helpful in building interactive exhibits that include electronic elements. In two days we won’t make you a master, but we’ll help you get over the initial hurdles and feel comfortable building and experimenting with simple electronic circuits. We aim to have a very hands-on experience with opportunities for you to try you own experiments within the framework of the course goals.

DAY 1 - Saturday 10am - 5pm
The first day of the course is a general introduction to electronic components and tries to gives a feel for how circuits work. It provides plenty of opportunity to try experiments on the circuits suggested and should give people enough understanding to feel they can build and modify circuits in future.

DAY 2 - Sunday 10am - 5pm
On the second day of the course we use the Arduino programmable controller to create a simple organ with lighting effects using the electronic skills from day 1. The focus is on techniques that are useful to make interactive installations and can be picked up easily.

Course leader:

Iain Sharp trained as an electronic engineer and showcases his unique creations on the web site lushprojects.com

Costs:

The workshop itself is free, you just pay for materials, including an Arduino processor which you'll take away with you. The full cost is £40, but there are a limited number of subsidised tickets for early birds - so be quick!

NB. Booking will close 7 days before the event to allow us to purchase materials.
