The Bend Arduino Group is inviting anyone interested in “physical
” – people from all ages and all levels of expertise – to come
and discover the the Arduino Technology, on Saturday, March 29th
starting at 1 pm at the Downtown Public Library (Brooks Room) in Bend. [What is Physical Computing? Physical computing is a creative framework for understanding human beings' relationship to the digital world. In practical use, the term most often describes handmade art, design or DIY hobby projects that use sensors and microcontrollers to translate analog input to a software system, and/or control electro-mechanical devices such as motors, servos, lighting or other hardware.]
Arduino Day is a global event celebrating 10 years of Arduino technology.
is combination of hardware and software that opens up an engaging and
D.I.Y. route to creating everything from a blinking light to flying an
unmanned aerial vehicle, to designing a diagnostic device that can save a
horses life or controlling an award-winning Solar Car that competes
The Bend Arduino Group will be hosting an open house
featuring several incredible Arduino based projects, a video slideshow
and two scheduled demonstration. At 2 Pm and 3 pm we will be providing
“What is Arduino” demos. Visitors will participate in an introduction to
the Arduino system.
We think everyone should have the hardware and resources to learn and play with cool electronic gadgetry.
Arduino Open House is a precursor to workshops that will be included in
the Library’s Summer Reading schedule. Thanks to the support of local
organizations and businesses including, The Tech Alliance of Central
Oregon, SmartWaiver and the Bend Arduino Group, 20 Arduino Starter Kits
will be available for workshop participants to experience Arduino.
