Spring come, we take off the thick clothes, The spring colour is special gift from nature, let’s go! Use difference points describing spring. Colour is the most vivid performance of the nature beauty. As the voice giving the feeling to the language, the colour gives the soul to the body.
Although points is small and humble element, usually, expressions with repetition, gradation, rhythm and unification made paintings greatly beautiful in form. Life is a new discovery experience. Hurry up! Bring your own spring back home.
Fee: Members RMB100; non members RMB200.
Rookies like me always are fascinated by how circuit board plays important role in all electronics. Now we have a chance to learn to design our own.
This coming Sunday 30th of March 12:30 – 15:30, Wouter will be teaching us how to design a PCB from scratch.
Bring your laptop and yourself to the hackerspace.
- During the workshop you will be provided will all the necessary materials.
- A guide will be presented showing the major steps of how to complete your SUMO robot.
- And hands-on help during the day

工作坊内容 Workshop Content：
在这次的工作坊中，大家将制作一个简单有趣的设计：摸摸摸 － 超绚的银色触摸界面，经典的六触摸点噪音电路，由Michel Waisvisz在七十年代设计。在轻触间把各种奇妙声音展现。无需繁杂的操作，快来感受指尖的曼妙的歌声。
In this workshop, you will learn how to make your own Crackle box – MoMoMo. MoMoMo designed by Meng Qi, the concept was first conceived by Michel Waisvisz and Geert Hamelberg in the 1960s, it is a small box with six metal contacts on top, which when pressed by fingers will generate all manner of unusual sounds and tones.
First you will learn the basic principle of the circuit – how it can make different sounds. After that, you will learn how to solder and assemble the parts step by step. Once you’re finished, there you are in the world of sounds! Start exploring!
Machine room training at Xinchejian on March 15th, Saturday, starting 1pm.
For members who don’t know how to handle the tools safely and correctly, this is your chance to learn to operate the tools in the right way and to protect yourself from getting injured. We’ve got some dangerous tools there in the machine room. You don’t want to mishandle these ones.
We have invited Niels to give us the training. He will show you how to use the machines one by one. Be prepared to cut and drill and get your hands dirty!
The Arduino workshop is great for those looking to get started with micro-controller programming and need a kickstart in the right direction. This is one of the most Popular workshops at xinchejian, Designed to not overwhelm people but provide the right balance of theoretical and hands on experience. Please do not sign up if you are not going to show up as you’ll be taking a seat from somone that wants to do it. This workshop will run in English.
You will need to have your own Arduino kit, we have DFrobot kits in XinCheJian for sale at RMB 210.00 – order online from DFRobot or Buy from us and help support the space.
Content of the workshop:
* Introduction to Arduino: board, IDE
* Writing your first program
* Connecting to sensors and hardware
* Followed by a discussion and Q&A
Please bring a laptop with the Arduino environment on it. It’s available at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software.
Fee: 150rmb for members, Non-member: 200rmb/person (Please pay at the workshop)
