Build a Buzzwire Game- Fablab

Join Fab Lab Maker Hub as we build one of our favourite gadgets – the electrifying Buzzwire Game. See if you have the steadiest hand to navigate the buzzwire without sounding the alarm and lighting the LED. It’s not as easy as it looks and you get to decide how difficult (or easy) to make the course! Build the game from our laser cut kit and handful of electronic components. No messy soldering required. All you will need is one small screwdriver, a sense of fun and a big helping of curiosity as we build the game and explore the basic principles of electricity & electronics along the way. 20 kits will be received by participants who sign up. The workshop will be carried out via a Zoom call on the day.
