Student break STEM workshop: LED Light Overload


  • HAK Electronics 506 South Fitzhugh Avenue #110 Dallas, TX, 75223 United States (map)

Get all four days for $175 (discount applied after purchase). Contact for multiple student discount. 

Jan 2nd - 5th. 9am to 2pm daily

Learn how to make a 3D LED cube, programmable pixel art, and more!

Ever seen a wall of LEDs and think "That's pretty cool"? Well come create one with us during break!

Here's the scoop: We know it's hard to find events to keep students busy over break. We also know students like being creative but don't always have the know-how, technology, or debugging experience. That's where we come in :). Come in with an idea (butterfly, shot clock, locker decoration) and we will help bring the project to life

Best thing is you keep what you make!

Take it home and see how you can HAK it to add even more creativity.
