The Bend Arduino Group is inviting anyone interested in “physical computing” – 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.

Arduino 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 nationally.

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.

The 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.

For more information check into the Bend Arduino Group web site http://www.meetup.com/Bend-Arduino-Group/  or show up Saturday at the downtown public library 1PM (Brooks Room) or contact David Robson, organizer at [address removed]

The Bend Arduino Group is in partnership with Tech Alliance of Central Oregon and The Deschutes County Library to bring free electronics technology education for individuals of all ages to Central Oregon.  Our sponsors for this program are: The Tech Alliance of Central Oregon, SmartWaiver, Strategic Realty and the Bend Arduino Group.
