In a Do-It-Yourself environment, participants will discover the physical phenomena related to electricity, such as electromagnetism and electrochemistry. They will learn to use integrated circuits and how to connect motors, light and sensors. The workshop aims to provide access to the expertise and resources needed in order to undertake the design of circuits and to add mechanical components when creating tactile, sound or electro-mechanical art.
Using the sound synthesizer project (Atari Punk Console), participants will learn basic soldering techniques. The last day of the workshop will take place at Fab Lab du PEC (Montreal) where they will  finalize their projects and meet a community of makers.
