Adafruit Holiday Workshop
Saturday, December 13th
10 am - 3 pm (pizza provided for lunch)
Amherst Media at 246 College St., Amherst, MA.
This event is open to all skill levels. You will learn the basics of
soldering and programming while making a project to take home to keep
or give away as a gift. We are asking participants to pay a fee to
cover the cost of materials, but scholarships are available. Since
soldering will be required, we will need parent permission.
Choose a Project!
1. Gemma Pendant - $30
The pendant is small - about 1-inch square. We can program it to
display a variety of images, such as a heart, smiley face, etc.
2. Gemma Hoop Pendant or Iron Man Arc Reactor - $30
We can use the same technology as the earrings to make a necklace or
an "Iron Man Arc Reactor" at about half the cost.
3. Gemma Hoop Earrings - $55
Create a pair of earrings for the holidays that light up to add a fun
4. NeoPixel Bracelet - $70
Loop four of the neo-pixel rings together to make a really fun
bracelet. This option costs more because we need four rings (but only
one battery supply).
