Fabschool Kids 6: a flashlight without battery

Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam

Making thing work without a battery!

Fabschool Kids is for curious children aged 10 to 12 who like to tinker or work with computers and electronics. This time we will be making a flashlight that needs no battery.

Curiosity, creativity and technology - that's what Fabschool Kids is all about. You learn by making and will be surprised by everything you are able to do. The workshop takes place around the Fablab Amsterdam. This is a digital production place where everyone can turn simple ideas into prototypes, using e.g. a laser cutter, sticker cutter, sewing machine, shopbot or a soldering iron. The workshops are led by designers and artists who have extensive experience in working with children and young people.

Making things work without a battery
Could you power your phone with a piece of dough, a lemon or a potato? is that possible? Needed: bread dough with some salt and acid, three lemons or potatoes and you will have enough power to make your flashlight or small engines work. In this Fabschool Kids we will work with this idea.
