Getting Bent: Build Your Own Portable Amplifier

This workshop will guide you step by step through the process of building your own standard, battery-powered, portable amplifier.

This course will show how simple electronics construction can be while emphasizing the basics of soldering, following an electronics diagram, custom circuit design, circuit construction, and finishing techniques. Though students may bring their favorite tools, all that is required is a 9v battery and a "box" to house your completed amplifier circuit (good candidates include cigar boxes, coffee cans, Tupperware, broken radios, small pre-existing speaker cabinets, etc. -- anything that can can be easily manipulated with a hand drill).

Students are required to have basic Soldering and Circuit Bending skills and a basic understanding of electronics components.
