Sketch a Circuit

We take a bunch of awesome fun things - drawing, electronics and twinkly lights and combine them all into a fun-filled day of creating your own electronic artwork! Using the supercool Bare Conductive electric paint, you'll get to make your own artworks that will light up the night! We'll discuss the fundamentals of electronic circuitry, show you how Bare conductive works, and then turn you loose to create your own personalised light-up masterpiece!

About the course

Bare Conductive is a totally non-toxic, electrically conductive material that can be painted or drawn onto almost any surface to create interactive or electronic artwork! We're going to show you how to design and create interactive artwork, avoid short circuits, and light up your life!

ALL TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT IS PROVIDED FOR THIS COURSE. 

Skills acquired

Creativity

As a Hacker, you're responsible for creating a useful, interesting or fun piece of work that others will want to use. As a result, you must have strong creative abilities to design technologies that are unique, visually appealing, interesting and thought-provoking. You’ll construct projects that engage users, encouraging them to purchase new items you create when released for public distribution.

Design Process

You will be creating and applying all the artwork, models, surfaces, images and textures which comprise your project. You will need to consider the layout and flow of your project, as well as create flow charts to map out the activities and people involved in your project’s development.

Making

Many technologists need to be able to prototype their projects quickly in small batches to test their reliability and application in real situations. Being able to safely, sensibly and reliably use (sometimes potentially dangerous) tools, different materials and your hands is an important skill for every Hacker to master.

Attention to Detail

Most technology has multiple parts which must work together seamlessly for it to function properly and to specifications. This requires an attention to detail above and beyond the normal levels. "Details matter; it's worth waiting to get it right." - Steve Jobs
