45 high school physics students are coming to visit Noisebridge with their teacher Amber and another teacher on Tuesday April 2, 2013 from 9:00 to 12:00. Sign up here if you have a skill you would like to teach to a small (or large) group. There will be 30-50 students on each day.

They would like to learn soldering and anything about electronics and wiring.

Context: students will be starting to learn about electromagnetism and will be putting their finishing touches on their solar homes and be building speakers or wiring their solar home the next week after the field trip. Anybody willing to teach a class about speakers, circuit bending, or anyway that you have applied EM knowledge to your current projects or past projects please sign up below!

We should organize this page into time slots and stations for teaching, with notes on the capacity for each station.


  • Liz (beginning soldering, hacking 101, contribute to Firefox)
  • Dru (science, tech, egalitarian decision-making, Neuroscience, C++ & Java)
  • Mitch (teach how to solder, electronics, show fun and simple projects -- but only after 11am)
  • Seth (tours)
  • Alex (video game development)
  • Lukas (just here to help in between work meetings)


Stations:

  • tours
  • laser cutter (4 people)
  • sewing
  • electronics
  • library
  • Turing classroom
  • Church classroom
  • 3D printers
  • kitchen
  • electronics lab
  •  ??

Proposed Schedule:


  • 10:00: arrive, introduce Noisebridge, and tours
  • 10:30: station teaching segment 1
  • 11:00: station teaching segment 2
  • 11:30: station teaching segment 3
  • 12:00: station teaching segment 4
  • 12:30: station teaching segment 5
  • 13:00: leave Noisebridge

(is a half hour enough time per station?)

Sign Ups:

Laser cutting 1. 2. 3. 4.

Beginning Soldering 1.

Open source software contribution 1.

Arduino Demo 1.

Speakers? 1.

Electronics 1.

(Ethical) Computer Hacking 101 (liz) 1.


Safety notes

  • Do not eat while soldering. Wash your hands afterwards! (Solder contains lead.)
  • Do not use the laser cutter or wood shop tools without supervision/training.
