Ben Heck: Make a gameBadge

Ben Heck guides workshop participants in the assembly of a pre-designed battery-powered single-board gaming computer called the “gameBadge”! The workshop is intended to teach surface mount soldering skills and an introduction to microcontrollers. Each participant will get to take home their assembled “gameBadge” which comes pre-loaded with a fully playable clone of “Moon Patrol”. The “gameBadge” can also be re-programmed using Microchip Studio/Arduino. Help will be provided so everyone is assured of a completed project to take home.

Below is an example of this workshop from our previous show in November 2021:
