Hello all,

We have teamed up with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Arts Office to run
family workshops around the theme of radio and light-based
communications, All workshops are free and open to everyone.

Details below

Build a Skull Radio with TOG
Saturday 13th December 2014: 11.30am – 1.30pm

Have you ever wanted to listen to music without using your ears? Turn
your own head into a speaker? The skull radio allows you to listen in
total silence, by sending sound waves through your teeth! Join Jeffrey
and Sinead and assemble a specially designed kit that allows you to
hear sounds directly, using vibration.
*Age: 10 +

Crystal radio assembly
Saturday 17th January 2015: 11.30am – 1.30pm

AM radio is the oldest form of radio transmission and is still
broadcast all over the world. In this workshop you’ll learn how to
build your own AM crystal radio set using basic components and
household items. TOG will bring along a short range microbroadcast
transmitter on the day so you will be assured of a strong signal.
*Age: 10 +

Stealth Communications – Using light and sound to send encoded messages
Saturday 24th January 2015: 11.30am – 1.30pm

Ever wonder how ships communicated with each other and land before
radio was invented? Before we could transmit voice signals? You can
play the smuggler by building kits using buzzers and LED lights, and
learn how to send encoded or silent messages to each other over long
*Age: 10 +

All of these workshops take place in new Lexicon Library in Dun Laoghaire.
