A special edition christmas arduino workshop. We'll be using a new very small arduino clone called ["Trinket"].
We can make a christmas star/tree with sound effects.
Ardillo did some research and collected a list of parts which can be bought for a fair price.

Christmas kit

The Trinket is one of the cheapest clone (unless you tinker around yourself).
We've made a DIY christmas kit which consists of the following:

Total €17,01 aproximitly €20

The url's of Farnell are without tax, our price is with 21% tax.

trinket HowTo

During the workshop we tell about arduino's and why they are awesome.
The Trinket is a little different but still easy to work with. It is important to know that your trinket is a 5V Logic version (not the 3.3V). This important when connecting your trinket to sensors, they have to be of the same voltage as your trinket.
Adafruit made a good tutorial on how to use this trinket.

So for making a Christmas tree/star with sound effects we made a guidance workshop where you are doing all the work and we are just helping. ...more to come, still work in progress...
