community / workshop

Knox Makers is a place for hackers, makers, crafters, artists, and mad engineers to play, work, teach, learn, and socialize: a hackerspace. Sharing workspace, tools, materials, and knowledge, we develop both group and solo projects.

Saturday, August 29, 2015 - 14:00 to 16:00

MATERIALS FEE: $15.00! Curious how digital electronic devices such as the computers, calculators and smart-phones that surround us actually compute using electricity? In this workshop we'll introduce the basics of binary logic, binary arithmetic and digital circuits. You'll learn about logic gates - the basic building block of digital circuits - and actually build a simple working 1-bit binary adder circuit using some chips, switches, LED lights and wires! This understanding of simple digital circuits opens the door to designing complex circuits like microprocessors and will provide a deeper appreciation of the digital devices that power our world. Suitable for ages 10-130! While there is a materials fee, this event is open to the general public. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
