This is an experimental workshop with a new kit. Things might get weird.

Takes about an hour and a half. Basic workshop. No prior knowledge needed. Materials cost 20€ per kit.

We are going to build an electronic kitten using tiny SMD parts. It will purr when you touch it right and hiss when you touch it wrong. It's going to work.

For people afraid of surface mount assembly/rework. You know those tiny little components in modern electronic devices? It's both possible and easy to assemble those by hand. You can do it, and I'll teach you how!

Think you don't have the tools? Think you can't manually place 0402s? Everything is possible with patience and practice. The equipment is minimal and you probably already have it. We'll learn the answer to THERE'S A SHORT ON A TINY PART OMG WHAT NOW? After this, you'll no longer need to be scared of SMD. Avoid caffeine immediately before the workshop, because shaky hands are a disadvantage.
