electromagnetic scanner by Jukka

Workshop description:

In the next workshop of our DIY electronics series participants will build a simple audio device for discovering and making electromagnetic waves audible. In the process students will also learn the basics of DIY audio electronics and at the end will have a battery powered device which can be used as a portable electronics music instrument. No previous experience of electronics is required from participants.

Each student should bring their own box for the instrument. For this a “cigar box” (or any box with paper-covered mdf) with a lid is recommended, minimum size 3.5 x 12 x 15 cm (h*d*w). The walls of the box should have a maximum width of 4 mm.
