Circuit Benders’ Ball: Build a Two Transistor Light Theramin
Date: Saturday, March 31 2012
Time: 1pm – 4pm
Location: Columbus Idea Foundry (1160 Corrugated Way, cmh 43201)
Fee: $10 ($15 if you plan to attend the performance; $5 discount)
Instructor: Alex Dyba
Workshop participants will create a simple two transistor light Theremin based on the 1976 Forrest M. Mims III design. This kit is perfect for beginners who will walk away confidently with a fun little noise maker, after learning about and soldering a handful of components. Intermediate attendees will also benefit from knowing how and why this circuit works. Estimated time will be 1 hour to completion. No experience is necessary. Participants who have their own soldering irons are encouraged to bring them (although it is not a requirement).
