This workshop will teach you the basics of working with programmable LED strips just in time for the holidays. We are not going to be teaching coding; however, we will show you how to manipulate the code so the lights twinkle, theater chase, and make a beautiful rainbow display or anything else imaginable.

Bringing your own laptop would be useful but not mandatory

The workshop will provide the following items

  • 1- capacitor
  • 1-meter neopixel led strip
  • 1 power supply
  • 1 Arduino

There will be a couple of CNC/laser cut holiday ornaments to wrap the lights on.

You do not need to be a member, but everyone must register and purchase a ticket.
Price $30.00
To purchase a ticket for this workshop go to Eventbrite.

Bingewatch episodes of Archer, the animated spy sitcom, and make some cool spy gadgets. (Really, are there any spy gadgets that are NOT cool?)
