Would you like to build your own robot army to take over the world? Everybody’s gotta start somewhere and you can get started on your first robot with Edtric at the OC Mini Maker Faire at UCI on August 17th, 2013!
Edtric’s Crash Course Electronics with Soldering Skills workshop will teach you some of the basics of electronics and soldering and at the end you’ll have your very own working robot.
To get an idea of what the workshop entails and to get a preliminary lesson in electronics, watch this video from Edtric:
At edtrication our purpose is to bring you affordable engineering hardware that allows the exploration of vast engineering and science applications. We like to think of our hardware as dynamic supplements going beyond the static pages of textbooks, theoretical problem solving, and the cubicle.
You explore new concepts. You experience new things.
Plus, you develop hands-on understanding. Our solutions are intended to remind you that even the largest and most complex systems start with simple concepts.
We hope you will find our hardware and accompanying lesson plans thought-provoking and motivating … able to ignite your ideas, excite your creativity, and inspire your imagination.
Let us nurture your inner engineer.

“WOW!! That was so awesome!!”
Last November we heard this sentiment all day as kids (and adults!) made their own paper rockets and launched them from our homemade rocket launcher at the Beall Center for Art + Technology Family Day event. The recipe for this easy to make launcher can be found in Make Magazine vol. 15.
On Saturday, aka tomorrow April 21st, at the Beall Center for Art + Technology we’ll be doing it again!
All the supplies will be there for making your own paper rocket so, start the count down and watch it launch high into the air.
Come on down and join us, there will be many other things to see and do at the Beall’s Family Day event.
Through Family Day activities, the Beall Center seeks to stir the imagination and motivate young people to delve into the basics of science, computer programming, and visual literacy—skills that will be critical to the next generation’s success in the workplace and in life.
