Lighten Up! Outreach Workshops


Lighten Up!


505access and members of our local communities have been presenting fun, hands-on workshops in electronics and electronic circuits to kids of all ages. We have been active in different venues including: Albuquerque Railyards Market, Albuquerque Museum, The NM Museum of Natural History, Children’s Choice Child Care Services and Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation (CTHF) Adaptive Sports Camp. In addition, featured below is a selection of pictures from our Workshops at Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails Camporee, Tech Trek (NM Highlands University) and Expanding Your Horizons (University of New Mexico). In August 2016, the Albuquerque Mini Maker Faire offered workshops for the first time and we were there!

THANKS to many individuals who helped present our Lighten Up! workshops and make our handout much more readable and useful!  Here is the latest copy of Lighten Up! Using Light in Designs: Introduction to Lighted E-Textiles.  Feel free to take this Introduction, make it better and share it!

In keeping with spirit of the Maker-movement of learning skills and passing them on, Aaron and his students presented our workshop “Light Up Valentine Cards” at Expanding Your Horizons Conference in Albuquerque in February 2018. We hope to post the handout for this new workshop soon! THANK YOU, Aaron, Anna, Grace, Kacie, Lysta and Moe in presenting this workshop!
