Workshop 88 is thrilled to have 2DKits back to host a FREE learn to solder workshop with their blinkie kits. This workshop will be FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC. Did we mention the event is FREE? You only need to pay for the cost of the materials in the kit. (Hey, if the materials were free, we'd give them away.)
Info from 2DKits:
What is Build-A-Blinkie and why are we doing this?
Our goal is to demystify electronic circuits. They are amazing pieces of technology that control vast areas of our lives. The complexity can be so great (take your cell phone for example) the technology is indistinguishable from magic. Well, we can do something about that! With building a blinkie, you get to build a circuit that does something interesting, with the satisfaction of doing it yourself. In the process we hope you gain an understanding of how they work, as well as a desire to learn more.
Never soldered before?
No problem – we provide as much or as little assistance as you require. We guarantee you will leave with a working blinkie. Thousands of kits have been built by folks of all skill levels in our workshops, and all will end up with a working blinkie.
We have easy-to-build blinkies for beginners that take minutes to assemble. We have blinkies of an intermediate skill level for those who have built them (or other electronic circuits before). And we have blinkies for those who desire both a challenge as well as an opportunity to build a work of art.
