Minecraft Circuits in Real Life

Presenter

Minecraft Circuits in Real Life is a series of workshops for educators and Maker Spaces. Rick Anderson, founder of FUBAR Labs and author of Pro Arduino, will take you from game to breadboard. In this introduction presentation you will learn how to create a "real" Redstone Torch with LEDs and transistors. Minecraft Circuits for Real Life originated at FUBAR Labs by Bill French and has been evolved by Rick Anderson into a series of classes. Rick and team will also discuss how by using Minecraft, you can attract makers, students, and audiences that might otherwise avoid electronic classes.
