EEE194: Digi-Key: Arduino Holiday Ornament

We’re  excited to announce our second class in a series of bi-monthly Digi-Key projects! In this class you will build and animate an LED twinkle-lit holiday ornament. Use this festive, spinning and twinkling piece to add cheer to your home, office, or school. TechShop is proud to partner with Digi-Key to bring exciting new projects with the latest technologies and introduce future Maker Professionals to innovative solutions. Every two months Digi-Key and TechShop will team up to focus on a new project that will be posted on Maker.io and available via a class at a local TechShop.

This project will focus on using the SparkFun Tinker Kit to build a holiday ornament that spins with a servo motor and changes color with an RGB LED at the same time (a derivative of the Rotating Holiday Ornament can be found here). The project will utilize multiple functions of the MCU and allow expansion with other example code created by SparkFun for the Tinker Kit.

The DigiKey Workshops are first come, first served and will not be rescheduled if they sell out. Sign up today to secure your space. Each participant will take home the $63 workshop kit to use on their own Halloween decorations. If this class is already sold out and you’d like to build this project on your own, you can find instructions Maker.io/TechShop and purchase the materials from DigiKey here.

Due to the nature of this limited offering, unlimited class passes and class coupons may not be used on this class.

EEE101: Soldering and Basic Electronics

Learn how to use solder and a soldering iron to make small stick figures, as well as how to solder electronic "through-hole" components for electronic printed circuit board assembly (PCBs).

In this class, you will learn basic solder and flux types, safe soldering practices, and soldering iron maintenance. You will learn to de-solder using various techniques, including a "solder sucker" tool or solder braid. In addition, you will build an LED Blinkatron 2000 - it's a simple soldering project that works!

All parts are included. Add the potentiometer to change the blink speed.

This is a fun first class for kids and adults!
