Musical fingertips / 12-16 years

You’ll fit your fingertips with 3D-printed thimbles that are attached by a signal wire to the circuit; and when the printed circuit comes into contact with the tactile surface, it will sound a melody through a speaker. Participants will get to know the basic electronic components (resistors, condensators, transistors) and the basics of electronics and maker technologies.

You’ll get to take your instrument home with you after the workshop is concluded.
