Build your own Magnetti - A Pocket Magnetic Field Receiver
DIY Electronics Workshop with Brett Ryan
Saturday, 29th July, 11-3pm
29 Wickliffe Tce, Port Chalmers

Have you been itching to explore the hidden wonders of the electromagnetic field but are concerned with the health risks of magnet implants? Now you can forgo the surgery and weave yourself into the web of wiggling charge by building the Magnetti - a pocket magnetic field receiver. The Magnetti designed by Brett Ryan consists of a coil of wire to pick up the fields, a receiver amplifier to boost the little wiggles, and a headphone amplifier so you can get out and explore.

In this workshop you will:
- Learn how to use and care for a soldering iron
- Be introduced to common components used in all electronic devices.
- Build your very own Magnetti to sonify the blips n whistles, hums n crackles, skarks n whoops, and pekwarks hiding in the aura of your electronic devices.
- Learn about magnetic fields by experiencing them for yourself.

You will need to bring a 9V battery and a pair of headphones.
No experience necessary!

Limited places available.
