I went along to a Data workshop in the Science Gallery today. The workshop was lead by an interesting man. Shintaro Miyazaki. The idea of the workshop was to build a device that would let you listen to the noise generated by electronic devices. The workshop consisted of us putting together a kit. The size of the class was small. I contacted the organizers earlier suggesting that I could bring along some soldering irons from TOG to save the students bringing along their own. Good thing I did. The kit was from Japan and consisted of a speaker, amplifier and microphone. The instructions for the kit were in Japanese but it was easy to follow. I found the kit very easy to put together and get working. I spent most of my time teaching people how to properly solder. As with all the data workshops I have been to you meet great people at them. Overall I liked attending the workshop. I think its important to go to a few workshops when you yourself teach workshops too. It gives you an insight to how the students feel at your workshop.
