Sound Circuit Workshop
IntroductionBy creating tangible models from digital designs, students and teachers collaborate in experiential, project-based learning with real-world applications. The process of designing, inventing, and fabricating exposes students to various career paths including manufacturing, industrial design, engineering, architecture and 3D graphics. Using a MakerBot engages students in the world around them, kindles a curiosity about how machines work, how objects fit together, and how the designers, architects, and inventors who build the products, spaces and technology in their lives have found solutions to a variety of design problems. Makerbotting has the potential to transform the way we think about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education, and to inspire more young people to pursue STEM careers.
This workshop will provide an introduction to analog circuits that generate sound. Students will learn to solder, read and create schematics, wire circuits, create 3D models, print 3D objects and document projects.
