You asked for it again!!!

Our LED Cloud project is perfect for all sorts of spaces. It can be hung in a bedroom, or can set the mood for any type of Event.

In the class you will learn to take the box you bring to the class, attach the light strips, make the processor connections and cover with fill for a ready to hang colorful cloud light. Due to time constraints this class will focus on building the clouds, so we will pre-program the micro controllers, but we will have links to easy online programs so anyone can do it at home. If you want to get into audino programming, LVL1 offers classes throughout the year.

The Kit includes a 5 meter LED colored light strip, a wall plug power source, a micro-controller, and polyfill. We supply tools and attachment devices (glue, pins, tape). You need to supply a box.

One Kit covers a roughly 18" by 12" box (and produces a roughly 26" by 22" cloud), if you want to make a larger cloud, you should buy 2 kits and bring a larger box.

**Kits are sold at our cost - those LED strips are expensive!

What you need to bring: a cardboard box smaller than the size you want your cloud to be.
What you get: everything else to make the cloud

You do not need to be a member of LVL1 to attend this workshop. In fact, visitors are encouraged! If it is your first visit to our space, you will need to sign our waiver of liability. (This is standard procedure for all LVL1 activities.
