Adventurers’ Club: Build a Hydrophone/Contact Mic!:

WHAT: The LA Makerspace Presents the Adventurers’ Club: Build a Hydrophone/Contact Mic!

WHERE: UCLA Interpretive Media Lab
1947 Baker St
Los Angeles, CA 90012

WHEN: Sunday, July 26, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)

EVENT DETAILS: Based on KitHub’s innovative Adventurers’ Club kit, and led by LA Makerspace/KitHub founder (and frequent White House family making advisor) Tara Tiger Brown, you’ll build and take home two kinds of microphones:
A contact mic, which senses audio vibrations through contact with solid objects. The recordings from the mic can be used to make music and sound art: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee4wCvEGZF8
A hydrophone, which records underwater: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=754pqkdorhs

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. Not actually a comment — But I made a mistake in the event listing and it’s actually UCLA Interpretive Media Lab, not Interactive. If you get this can you fix it? Thank you!!
