This is where you get to build one of those LED flashing things.

You start with the kit, use the tools we have in the room. When you are
done, you will have a working blinkie. We have blinkie Techs to help you
debug any problems.

We do allow and encourage children to build their parent’s blinkie,
but the parent has to stick around and learn about the process.

  • Where: Pumping Station: One
    3354 N. Elston, Chicago
  • Who: Open to the public
  • Cost: $5 suggested donation for non-members plus cost of kits.

Kits will be provided by 2Dkits. They cost between $7 and $21.
