Bread and Circuits: Flashlight Fundraiser

Jan 19 - Jan 19

Sorry. This workshop is fully booked.
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Starts: January 19, 2018

This is the first Bread and Circuits workshop that we’re offering to raise money for Gadget Lab scholarships. In this one session workshop we’ll sip wine, enjoy some tasty nibbles and look at the inner life of a LED flashlight. You’ll learn how to solder, build a simple circuit, and use a heat gun and heat shrink.  You’ll also learn why the super cool flashlight you make from copper plumbing parts is really a solar panel backwards.

If sippin’ and soldering sounds like a bad idea, don’t worry. It’s a two person soldering task and I’ll hold the iron while you have fun knowing that all profits from this workshop will go to scholarships at Gadget Lab.  We’re running summer camps and after school workshops and everyone here at the Lab is committed to making this programming available to all kids. The fee is your choice of donation and the max# of participants is 10.   If you find the workshop is full, please email me ( so I’ll know to add another session.  This is the first in what will be a series of individual workshops that will let adults learn the joy of gadgets while raising money for a good cause. Please tell your friends!  (Beer and  delicious non alcoholic drinks will also be available.)

Please Note:  The payment page will not appear because this is by donation.  You can donate at the event or send your donation via PayPal to  Gadget Lab is a for profit company so your donation is not tax deductible. That’s why I’m making sure these workshops will be extra fun and enlightening. All proceeds and outlays will be noted on the website and will be reviewed by outside staff.  Gadget Lab is a small operation and I don’t have the resources to create a separate non-profit. Still, I see a great need for access to this type of programming and I hope you’ll consider helping me make this possible for all kids. ~ Karen
