Granny Green’s Big Night Out: 8th November 2010
This Monday we’re focusing on craft and film. The craft group will be running, with more informal crafting concentrating on our own projects (or talking, whichever wins on the night!) and the film group with be watching All About Eve (see previous post). As always, we’re at The LOT in the Grassmarket between 6pm and 9pm and the evening’s free and open to anyone who’s interested in coming along – no need to register, just pop in on the night!
Now for some news about next Monday – November 15th. On Monday 15th November, we’ll be running a Beginning Electronics Workshop with the Edinburgh Hacklab. The workshop is aimed at complete beginners, no electronics experience required! You’ll get an introduction to electronics and soldering – how it works, how to use a soldering iron – and then build a Conway’s Game of Life kit (http://www.ladyada.net/make/conway/) This is a simple kit (16 blinky LEDs and a microcontroller) that simulates life itself… apparently! The kit comes with all the bits you’ll need, including two AA batteries.
The cost for the workshop will be £15. This includes all of the components you’ll need, plus access to all of the tools and materials needed to make the kit, as well as instruction and assistance from members of the Edinburgh Hacklab. We are only accepting a maximum of 15 participants to ensure you’ll get enough one-to-one attention if and when you need it. We launched the workshop at last week’s Granny Green’s and places are filling up, so please let me know fairly quickly if you want a place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org!
