Reflections on the "NANDSYNTH" workshop


Mentor: Tuomo Tammenpää (website/contact?)

Facilitator Team: whole dimension+ team

Observations: dusjagr


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

Short Info


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.
