WHOLE-DAY WORKSHOPS

Learn, Build, Play

Workshops run each school holidays. Build your own portable gaming console!

On the day, we will help you choose one of the following kits to build and take home:

BEGINNER LEVEL - MICROCADE

This mini arcade cabinet comes loaded with 30+ pre-installed games, playable with a joystick and two buttons, and displayed on a bite-sized monochrome screen.
Featuring 4 solderable components, (plus the chassis itself) the Microcade is perfect for students who might need a bit more time with each solder joint before moving on.
Powered by a lithium power pack, charge it up and it's ready to go!

JUNIOR LEVEL - NIBBLE

Best suited for younger students, the Nibble includes 10 solderable components.
Powered by three AAA batteries (included), the Nibble features a colour screen, seven buttons and a power switch.
The Nibble comes pre-loaded with three awesome games, and more can be added using the CircuitBlocks coding application.

INTERMEDIATE LEVEL - 8BITCADE ORIGINAL

For students who want more of a challenge, the 8BitCADE Original includes 18 solderable components.
With the same monochrome screen as the Microcade, the 8BitCADE adds extra buttons, three LEDs, and a host of resistors and other components to get you soldering!
Powered by a lithium power pack, charge it up and it's ready to go!

EXPERT LEVEL - 8BITCADE XL

For students wanting the ultimate soldering challenge, the 8BitCADE XL has a whopping 25 solderable components, including an extra huge screen!

This XL console includes a host of components not seen in the other kits, including capacitors, transistors and flash memory!

Recommended only for advanced students.
