What is the MAKERPad?

MAKERPad is intended to introduce members to soldering, electronics, software, and making. It is a kit that will require all of those skills. We provide the materials and the expertise to help you make it! This year we are taking the idea behind how the TIG Shield worked and mixing it in with buttons! The idea is to build a MIDI pad like device. While that’s the main idea, the device can also be used to play games (like Simon Says!).
