Circuit Design and Fabrication = Sound Objects
Circuit boards are often much more durable and reliable than hand-wired projects. They allow you to generate many identical circuits quickly. They also look really nice.
By the end of the day each student will create a tangible product! We will design, lay out in software, print, iron to copper board, etch in a chemical bath, and assemble.
we will cover: schematic and board design using free software – board design guidelines – board etching with cheap, accessible materials – assembly and mounting
notes: bring a portable computer (mac or windows or linux). bring a contact-mic-able* object. something that makes fascinating sound when struck. we will make small noises larger together.
