Event Details

Learn the basics of electronics and soldering by building an awesome music toy!  A workshop for kids with the manual dexterity to wield a soldering iron -- approximately ages 10 and up.

From ladyada's kit description:

Drawdio is an electronic pencil that lets you make music while you draw! It's great project for beginners: An easy soldering kit with instant gratification. Essentially, its a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create different sounds. The result is a fun toy that lets you draw musical instruments on any piece of paper.

-Runs on a single AAA battery for many hours (even 'nearly dead' batteries will work)
-Ridiculously fun for all ages

For more information about drawdio, look at Jay Silver's page.


The suggested donation for the workshop is $30, to cover supplies.  All of the events, classes, and workshops hosted and run by the Parts and Crafts Collective are free, or are priced on a sliding-scale.  Donations greater than the suggested amount are deeply appreciated and help us create our projects and run our programs and allow us to work with people who could not otherwise afford to come to our events.  No one will be turned away based on their lack of ability to pay.

Will Macfarlane co-founded Camp Kaleidoscope and founded the Parts and Crafts Collective.  He's taught hands-on science, technology, and engineering to students of all ages, elementary to graduate school, as well as to artists and designers.  Apart from teaching, he also writes software for MOS architects, a small, experimental, architecture firm.
