Revision as of 00:45, 29 April 2013

The E&R lab will be available for non-members to learn basic electronics and work on projects:

Sign up is via Eventbrite This will be a free basic intro to soldering class. You do not have to pay anything to attend, and you do not need to be a member to come (non-members should sign up through eventbrite though). I'll give a brief into to electronics, and then will have a number of kits for sale for people who would like to make something. This is also a fund-raising event for the Asylum, all instructors will be volunteers, so the donations and the margins will go towards E&R for new tools and parts.

I'll only be going over a basic overview of soldering and electronics, which will be enough to build a kit from instructions. We also have a full soldering course that will go over things much more in-depth.


Electronic Kits Available

Circuit Hacking night is a fundraiser for the E&R lab. If you would like a project to work on the profit from sales of any of these kits will help keep the lab up and running. Currently we have the following available.
