Toy Hack Event

event

#1

This is an awesome idea!

Some photos from one that Julian and his kids attended: https://vanhack.ca/wp/2013/06/27/photos-from-toymageddon-toy-hacking-night/ - the glowing mushroom creation & tracked vehicle base are their creations.

Some ideas and reference:

Maybe we should do this as a regular series of events, starting simple, and building both mentors/parents comfort as well as the kids :slight_smile:

The Circuit bending guide has some really good suggestions re what kinds of toys to look for.

Thoughts After 1st ToyHack in December 2018

  • consider allowing adults
  • create a set of “tool boxes”, one for each table
    • common screwdrivers
    • pliers
    • wire snips
  • “flag” (eg bright color, ribbon, …?) on shared, less common tools, such as Torx “security” drivers
