We will be hosting a “Make-a-thon” of LightSound devices on Thursday, October 20th from 3 PM – 7 PM in the RMSC Technology Lab. This is a drop-in event, so don’t worry if you can’t make it the whole time.


LightSound is an open-source tool developed for those who are visually impaired and auditorily oriented to experience the variation of light intensity during a solar eclipse in real-time (through sound). It is built using an Adafruit Flora, a MicroSD Breakout MIDI board, a High Dynamic Range Digital Light Sensor, and a 3D printed case. Supplies will be provided!


If you have any previous experience with soldering electronics, then we could use your help!
When: Thursday, October 20th, 3 PM – 7 PM – drop in anytime
Where: The RMSC (Rochester Museum & Science Center) Tech Lab
