Holiday Programme - Useless Box

Useless Box

The project this school holidays is the “Useless Box”, our version of the maker classic.

Flick the irresistible switch located on the top of the box and a small perspex arm (lit with LEDs) pops up to flick the switch back to its original position.  Totally awesome, but totally useless.

On the day you’ll get to spray paint the top of the box, wire and solder the components plus screw and assemble all the pieces together.  And, of course, you get to take your creation home!

No previous experience is required and you’re welcome to bring a grown up if you want to.

This workshop will run on the following days. Please note it is a one day workshop so students should only book for one session.
