How To Run an EL Wire Class/Workshop #backtoschool

Elworkshop

Last weekend I taught an EL wire class at The Madagascar Institute in Brooklyn, NY. In true Adafruit fashion, I’ve created a guide to running your own EL class or workshop at your local hackerspace, makerspace, school, or club! Head over to the Adafruit Learning System to find out my tips and tricks for instruction as well as a full list of supplemental materials you should pick up for your students. Madagascar Institute has a great model for classes – the instructor and the venue split the class fee equally, and they use Eventbrite for class signups. Classes can be a perfect way to raise rent for your space while finding new members! I’ll be teaching another EL wire class on Sunday, August 26th.

You might have caught my class on the Adafruit Show-and-Tell!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
