1:00pm to 4:00pm at Space 1026
Build your own controllable and programmable DIY light saber from scratch. There will also be Yogagami, the Japanese art of folding paper into a Yoda. Click here to sign up for the workshop!
The event is all ages but is strongly suggested that Padwans partner up with their Jedi Masters (Kids bring a Parent or Guardian) It is also $35 per parent/child team, and you will complete one saber together
All the materials needed to make your very own Saber are included in the class price of $35 , including a laser cut saber, the LEDs, button, battery, and Arduino. All proceeds generated will be donated to Space 1026.
At the heart of the Project is the atmel attiny85 8 bit microprocessor. You might know it in its much more expensive version as the Arduino. No soldering will be involved as the majority of the project is made with jumper wires, a tiny breadboard and the wonders of the hot glue gun. For more advanced Jedis’ who are interested in learning the force fundamentals, we will be offering an explanation of how to program your own attiny85’s at home by using an Arduino Uno!!!
