MadLab is a unique, hands-on electronics workshop where students learn to solder electronic components onto specially-designed circuit boards.
Your students can try their hand at soldering, find out how electronics work, and even make a buzzing puzzle to baffle their friends in our electronics workshop.
In the workshop, participants solder electronic components from start to finish onto specially-designed circuit boards. We start with a hands-on interactive talk to explain circuits and all the components.
There are several kits to make, from simple Flashing Lights to a programmable robot which is able to find its way around a maze. Participants get to learn how to use a soldering iron, and will actually make and take home a working electronic circuit.
Minimum of 5 participants, maximum of 30 participants per session.
Prices for this Science Made Simple workshop start at just £690+VAT for up to 2 sessions.
