First Night at NottingHack.

Posted: June 15, 2011 in NottingHack

Last night was our first night at Nottinghack  Evening Build Workshop for the `stay calm and solder` with the Vibrati Punk Console.

`The Vibrati Punk Console is a beginner-friendly electronic music project that can be finished in one evening. The simple circuit generates an amazing range of retro warbles, screams, glitches, fuzzes and tone ramps.`

Brought the kit and after a quick pep talk the boy was ready to go, he just sat down and got on with it. His soldering skills are great for a 12 year old who was only doing it fo the 3rd time.

I was just left to sit, read instructions, pass components and watch. He did ask if i wanted to do some but said no at first but eventually had the chance to solder up a few points, which to be honest are the worst looking soldering on the PCB.

Silky skills

Not sleeping!
