We'll be making and programming full color animated RGB LEDs strips! In the workshop we solder together a strip of full color animated RGB LEDs. Andrew will go over how the LED strips work, and how to connect them to a power supply and logic board (a tiny microcontroller computer running a test pattern.) By the end of this workshop, you'll have a working LED strip and a harness to connect it to the included power supply and also to an Arduino microcontroller if you own one.
The materials fee for the workshop is $35 but if you already have one of these LED strips then bring it and it is free. We'll work on programing your strip with some new code. We've been compiling some different patterns to share with you - or bring your own explorations.
We want to see the cool stuff you all are doing! So email us if you have something you want to show off and we will arrange a demo.
A fun-for-all-ages event. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

See you soon!
