J'aime 4093 Nandsynth
J'aime is a discussion on appropriate and interdiscplinary maker eduction. we are aiming at critically reflect on our methods and improve through interdisciplinary collaborations.

Reflections on the "NANDSYNTH" workshop
Mentor: Tuomo Tammenpää (website/contact?)
Facilitator Team: whole dimension+ team
Website: https://github.com/kimitobo/nandsynth (Was that shared to the participants? More info on workshop material?)
Timeframe: 2 h, from 14:00 - 16:00, Saturday afternoon
Cultural Background: Tuomo is Finnish, speaks very fluent english, constant translation into chinese by I-Chern and all other facilitators
Nandsynth is an educational DIY kit for solar-powered electronic sound experiments. The participants learn the basics of electronic sound synthesis and using solar energy instead of batteries. The participants are also introduced to electronic prototyping with a breadboard and components to the level of continuing the experiments after the workshop.
Approx 12 kids (age around 8-12? some even younger?) with their parent, some other people form the science museum...

Lemonster is an educational DIY kit packaged as monster toy instrument. Lemonster teaches very basics of two phenomena 1) electrolysis in generating small electric voltage and 2) synthesizing sound with the electricity using simple analogue electronic components. Metal electrodes in fruit or vegetable like lemon or potato power the sound circuit on breadboard. Lemonster is open design and all parts apart from the electronic components and metals can be made with 3D printer. Lemonster was developed for Prototyping Factory workshops in Taiwan National Science Education Center, hosted by Dimension+in Taipei, Taiwan October 2015.
We also discussed and reflected on J'aime Lemonster during our session in Taipei.
dusjagr on bioelectronix and making noise circuits
Cyber DIY / DIWO Elektro-Chemikaal Introduction
Used for introduction of Nanotechnology, Microfabrication, Photolithography, designing your own electrodes and make the PCB.
also used to introduce participants in breadboarding and reading schematics.
Further developed as "Open Source Wurstware" for the first Wurstware Freedom Day: Widerstand durch Wurstware.
... and cos it's really funny: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVlOlL3BmgQ
PIFcamp Plant Analyzer is a modification of the NanoSmano circuit, using SMD parts, very small. participant can design part of the circuit by hand, etching and making. can be used to sonify the resistance of a plant, and many other things.

Werde Teil des Gesamtwiderstandes
werdeteildesgesamtwiderstandes is a very simple analog synthesizer based on a resistor-capacitor pair as feedback loop to an inverter ic. werde teil des gesamtwiderstandes is an instruction that means become part of the integral resistance.
Workshops by Christian Faubel and Ralf Schreiber, the masters workshopologists on DIY electronics and robotics. Christian was also doing the Disco Robot in Taipei... (http://derstrudel.org/pdfs/workshop_small.pdf)

Fish_simulator BrainHack circuit
Again the use of a 4093 NAND oscillator as a Brain-hacking circuit. 2 blinking LEDs are controlled by skin resistance. See more here on the wiki.
