You’ll get to know the basics of electronics and work with condensators, transistors, resistors and link them all with a microphone. The latter picks up sounds and lights up two LED lights each time they receive a signal. The basis of the ornament is constructed from CDs shaped using a laser cutter, to which you solder the circuit.
The LED ornaments are yours to keep after the workshop is concluded.
