GadgetHeads

The theme of GadgetHeads is "Robots the Inside Story".  You don't actually make robots (we do that in CodeHeads) but you'll learn about motors, circuits and batteries - key componenets of robots- by making cool projects like a spinny motor, a doorbell for your room, a cool copper flashlight

 

You'll learn to use a heat gun and a soldering iron to make circuits and an electronic Simon Says game. 

 

This is Gadget Lab's core workshop and every activity is designed to build skills, inspire curiosity and instill a joy in making things yourself. 

Ages: 10 -14

Screentime Rating: Moderate (Just the 3D Design for the doorbell).

Tech Resume Skills:  Circuit building, safe care and use of a soldering iron and heat gun, through-hole soldering, wire splicing, basic electron theory,  structure of LEDs and transistors.
