* For this years Brighton Science Festival, we're running a series of workshops designed to help build up the skills needed to create your own electronics projects - from simple soldering, through an introduction to electronics, leading up to microprocessor programming.

* The workshops will be running each Saturday during the festival - 19th Feb, 26th Feb, 5th Mar. Spaces are limited, so please see the [[Brighton Science Festival Workshops|project page]] for information on booking.
  
It's time to celebrate christmas with a difference. We at BuildBrighton have decided that our delightful little town is just not festive enough and have taken it as our personal mission to liven things up.

* When? '''Saturday the 15th of January 2011'''
 +
* What? '''Try to post a cupcake 1000 miles, more details on the [[Cupcake Hackathon]] page'''
  
At 8pm we shall congregate at The Skiff, the home of BuildBrighton, to drink some beer and make some throwies. Throwies are basically large LED's attached to batteries and magnets. When you bring these things together you get the wonderful combination of lights that last for about 3 weeks that stick to anything metal. We have enough parts to make 300 of these throwies.

=== [[Light Brigade IR Badge Board and Soldering Workshop]] ===
 +
* 30th October 2010
 +
* For the [http://www.whitenightnuitblanche.com/ White Night 2010] celebrations in Brighton, we ran [http://www.whitenightnuitblanche.com/brighton/events/light-brigade/ a soldering workshop] for drop-in folk to make an interactive IR & RGB LED badge, that senses the presence of other badges in its vicinity and shares colours between the devices. And Zombies.  
  
When all the throwies are made, probably around 9-9:30, we shall leave The Skiff and descend upon Brighton to decorate whatever we can find by throwing our throwies onto metal things, preferably out of arms reached so they cannot be 'tidied' up. Once we have lit Brighton to the best of our ability, we shall descend to the Fountain Head (or another suitable pub) and salute our aesthetic improvements in proper style.

=== [[Live Coding Workshop]] ===
 +
* Thursday the 13th of May, 2010.
 +
* This workshop will introduce the use of the cross platform, open source audio programming language Supercollider. Its use as a live coding system will be explored after a short introduction to how musicians, scientists and artists use this environment in their work.
  
Anyone can come along and anyone make a throwie - they won't cost you anything. However, if you would like to make a donation to the group then we will be very grateful.
+
=== Robot Takeover & Therething ===
 +
* 30th October 2009
 +
* Robot Takeover was a fund raising event for BuildBrighton which took place at Komedia. It consisted of talks, demonstrations and live coding performances. The evening ended with the presentation of the [[Theremin|digital pseudo-theremin (Therething)]] designed and made by BuildBrighton to the electronica DJs Evil Nine.
  
To attend, just show up, but we would be grateful if you would sign up on [http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/4896451/gb/Brighton/BuildBrighton-Christmas-Party/The-Skiff/ upcoming] first to give us an idea of numbers.
