Maker School: Tuesdays - week 6

click for a closer look
We've had a much more productive week.  I purchased enough small 'breadboards' - electronics prototyping thingy - for us to have one each.  This will be an invaluable tool for this project and many more to come.  To make it even more useful we set about mounting them on a piece of perspex alondside a battery pack.

So far we've got most of the wires trimmed to length, tinned (a little solder added to the strands of wire) and some of them have a 'header' pin (for poking into the breadboard) soldered on with heatshrink added over the solder joint.  Proper job!  Some of the team also worked on carefully sawing up a piece of perspex.
