Electronic brain box

  • Play with Electronic BrainBox

Lego Train

Little Bits

  • Trashman will bring in his set of Little Bits (tiny bricks to build electronics)



A drawdio is a fun little noise making simple piece of electronics. We're going to make on on stripboard using the schematics provided on

A working example is available, as well as sufficient parts to build a couple of them. Building one will take somewhere between 1 and 2 hours, depending on soldering skills. This activity is recommended for 8 years and up.

Atari Punk Console

The Atari Punk console is another classic noise fabricating device. The name comes from the fact that the noise is somewhat similar to the Atari 2600 sound system.

The Atari Punk Console is build around similar components as the Drawdio, but is more advanced and produces a wider range of weird noises. Again, a version which can be buildon strip board is available

Expect to spend close to 2 hours to build your very own Atari Punk console. Components and cut to size stripboards are available, as well as a working model to compare your own version against.
