Come to the Georgetown Library to learn about the basics of electronics and soldering and follow the footsteps of the great Nikola Tesla, for an electrifying experience! This beginning class will introduce you the functions of capacitors, resistors, transistors and microchips as they work together in an integrated circuit.
This month, we will use soldering techniques to put together your own TOWS (Terribly Obnoxious Woodpecker Sound) which produces a very loud woodpecker sound. This small kit just can't be ignored as it generates the pecking sound of a crazed bird. Uses a small piezo and a two transistor electronic circuits that generate\ a high voltage to provide a terribly loud "rapping/tapping" sound from the piezo. Features include a small control to adjust the speed of the "tapping".
You will be working with a hot soldering iron and a signed release form is required for all participants. Parent or guardian signature is necessary for all those under the age of 18. All supplies provided.
Limited to 10 participants.
