Building my first Remote Control (1st Track)

Have you ever wondered how your TV remote worked? How about we each make a basic remote control and introduce the concept of infrared to our kids.

The class:  This is a 2 hours collaborative class between kids building their own infrared based remote controls and using them to build an active domino effect. Come in, build and play!

The Fee:  You will receive additional components for this class.  Make sure to bring your Starter Kit from previous sessions to participate.

Ages: 7-14

Prerequisites: The introduction class and the Starter Kit.
