Interaction Station Beknopte omschrijving inhoud module

Anyone still complaining about the weather? How about try to make use of it?

Wind in Rotterdam…say no more.

Using this fact, during the workshop we will learn basic electronics and use them to create a wind powered object that becomes alive in bad weather.In short: we will make small circuits that will light up when it is windy. Uitgebreide omschrijving inhoud module

This course aims to get you acquainted with the basics of electronics and making simple circuits. A start in being able to develop ideas to work creatively with the medium.
