Electronic Crafts on Canada Day

YuKonstruct took part in the City of Whitehorse’s Canada Day celebrations at Shipyards Park this year, with a fun all-ages workshop on electronic crafts. We brought some of our favourite LED craft kits to the event: electronic operation game, mini flashlights and LED flowers, as well as the always-popular squishy circuits (play dough and LEDs).

Samples of the LED crafts

Amid the fun festival atmosphere at the park, participants in the Kids Zone learned some basic electric circuits and assembled their crafts with assistance from YuKonstruct members.

All-ages Valentine’s Day Fun

Thank you to everyone who came out to our All-Ages Craft Night!

We had lots of fun making Valentine’s Day themed crafts. We had several kits available including little robot love bugs, stuffed monsters and valentine cards.

Makers of all ages enjoyed learning about simple electronics by trying one of the two love bug kits. One love bug kit made light up blinkybugs inspired by obeyken’s instructable. The other kit included a small vibrating motor so participants could design their own little vibrobots.

We also brought back some of our favourite kits from past craft nights, including LED flowers, make your own felt monster kits and glovetopus kits.
