Throwies!

Learn what your high-tech phone display has in common with a pickle!

As Adric mentioned a couple of days ago, we’re celebrating LED month with a special event, Explore LEDs: LEDs as Art and Science. Come see our LED projects, including a LED soil moisture sensor we’ve been developing in conjunction with a local farm cooperative and, as recently featured on Hack a Day, the LED player piano!

Want to work on your own LED project? We’ll teach you how to make magnetic LEDs (aka throwies) and LED jewelry you can take home with you. Materials provided!

For those who (like us), can’t get enough of LEDs, local LED vendors LED to the Light will be there to provide you with all your LED needs.

    February, i think is magnet/attraction month, and March i think we have loosely agreed to be The March of the Robots! All of these we plan to have a big expo/party at the end of the month.
