Meet the Maker: Build-a-Blinkie

“This is where you get to build one of those LED flashing things,” returning makers Dwayne and Dale introduce their traveling workshop. You start with the kit, and use the tools provided in the maker area. If you’ve always wanted to learn to solder, this is the place to go!  When you are done, you will have a working blinkie. The entire process only takes about 15 minutes, depending on your skill level!  Blinkie Techs will be on hand to help you debug any problems.  (Children are encouraged to build their parent’s blinkie, but the parent has to stick around and learn about the process.)

This year, Dwayne and Dale will offer FREE “Atomic Musecon” kits for attendees, sponsored by the folks at MuseCon (pictured).atomic_blink_redIn case you’re wondering, they will also offer their full range of 2DKits from beginners to advanced.  (Prices range from $5 – $80.)
