Do you love Halloween? Want to do more than build displays for your porch and lawn?Go one step further and make them move, scream and otherwise react to trick or treaters!
Join us as Maker Kevin Osborn explains how, using simple and inexpensive items, you can engineer reactive displays for your porch, lawn and (Haunted) house! In his talk, Kevin will teach you:
* How to use simple motion sensors to activate lights, sound and wind effects
* How to electrify your Jack-o-lantern with simple electronics
* How make creepy low lying fog from a fog machine.
* How to get the stuff you need to start creating interactive professional quality effects for your next Halloween.

Adults only. Soldering skills will be taught.  Supply cost: $20. Please bring in cash. Only space for 10 adults.
You will come away with knowledge and a functioning LED light board for a Jack-o-Lantern.
