MP3 Mono Amplifier


This is a great project for teachers who want to introduce some electronics, but want to keep it simple and make sure the students take home something really useful.

The Stereo Ipod Dock project challenges students to design a stylish product using the electronics kit supplied as well as workshop materials chosen by the teacher. All students complete an identical electronics component of the project, but the real design comes in enclosing the technology in a suitable form.

Schools with a laser cutter, vacuum former or have CNC capability will find this project a great use of their technology.
