Smallest Parade Float Tech Workshop

Learn the basics of animation, lights and motion with Bill Chandler, two-time Smallest Parade award winner and a former display professional. Through a demonstration, slide show and discussion, class will follow through an actual float project’s progress, examining the relevant issues as they come up with particular focus on the construction of the necessary drive components, motors and power sources. A showcase of components will be available for inspection. This type of construction lends itself to inventing a variety of ideas, methods and modeling techniques.

Full size float builders may benefit from the discussion too and scale the mechanisms larger.
