Ever wanted to learn how to build your own solar-powered gadgets for use in sustainable installations & outdoor computing? This workshop will provide an introduction to attaching mini solar panels to small battery-powered devices. Wire your own simple oscillators using solar cells, piezo discs & a few simple electronic components such as resistors & potentiometers. Learn how to power the Arduino microcontroller with solar cells & explore some basic Arduino projects such as powering small motors & generating sound.

Refund policy:
Please note, all class fees include a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $25 that will be deducted from your refund if you sign up for, then drop, a class. So, for example, if you sign up for Machine Sewing 101 and pay the $155 class fee, but then remember that you have trapeze school final exams that conflict with the Sewing class and shouldn’t have signed up after all, we will refund you $130 of your tuition payment.
