Toy Hacking is a fun and playful way to learn how circuits work. This workshop at the Craftsbury Public Library on June 25 is the first in a series of programs to be held at the library in conjunction with the Spark a Culture of Innovation grant, a collaboration between the Vermont Public Library Foundation and Vermont Makers. We will start with used electronic toys rescued from thrift stores and garage sales. Then we carefully and safely take the toys apart to learn how they work. Participants explore both the simplicity and complexity of these toys and their unique circuits and are shown how to identify inputs, outputs and power. We’ll experiment with circuit bending and reverse engineering while we reimagine and reinvent the toys with materials on hand. This program is funded by the Vermont Community Foundation.
The program runs from 1:00 to 4:00, and is open to people aged 12-18. There is no cost for this program, but pre-registration is required. The workshop is limited to 20 participants.
