In this lesson you’ll learn how to design and build a custom touch controller that works with the amazingly awesome BBC micro:bit. You’ll learn basic electronic concepts like conductivity and put your understanding to practice in the Patchr Design Tools.

This might be your first crack at designing your own printed circuit board (also known as a PCB) and so no soldering is involved.

Note: micro:bit not included.
