Workshop fees: $45 (student/reduced price)/$75 (regular price)
[NOTE: This is a three-part workshop. Session one runs from 10am – 1pm on Saturday, March 10th, session two runs from 10am – 1pm on Saturday, March 17th, and session three runs from 10am – 1pm on Saturday, March 24th]
In this intensive hands-on workshop, participants will learn about resistors, Ohm’s Law, and LEDs (Light-Emitting Diodes), as well as gain practical experience in soldering, through the creation of a small (roughly 8″ square) LED “drawing” that can be plugged in and placed anywhere indoors. The breakdown of the workshop series is as follows:
– Session one: Participants will design their LED “drawing” while learning about LEDs, circuits, and polarity.
– Session two: Instructors will lead participants in a soldering tutorial, after which participants will solder their own projects.
– Session three: Instructors will lead participants in a basic electronics tutorial covering voltage, current, resistance, and Ohm’s Law, which will enable participants to adjust and complete their projects.
No previous experience with electronics and/or soldering is required. This workshop is most suitable for adults and youth aged 10 and up. We recommend that youth ages 10-13 be accompanied by an adult. This workshop has been made possible with support for the Ohio Arts Council.
