Under the 8TH AAiSS Art Training Enhancement Courses 2016, XPLOR ran the eight-week “Shocking Innovation Club” workshop for primary and secondary school students. Introduction on basic electronic was given in an interesting and interactive way by delivering basic electronic knowledge together with hands-on robot prototype making and live music synthesis. Easy, handy and innovative materials such as littleBits, conductive ink and Raspberry Pi are used as teaching materials. The participants could apply their creativity to construct electronic works freely.
