Missed last year's Arduino workshops? Kick off 2014 with a series of introductory and advanced Arduino workshops led by DC Robotics Group Education Director Glenn Mossy. In this introductory session (identical to the Jan/28th and Jan/30 session), Glenn will provide an informative lesson Introduction to Arduino in an interactive format for you to gain an understanding of the components, inputs, outputs, programming the Arduino beginning with up projects in the recommended starter kit.  Glenn will help get up and running with the software and then get right into putting components on your breadboard and walk everyone through building the RGB Led, Potentiometer, Servo projects.  Bring your laptop to get started with your Arduino Starter kit. 

Details and kit ordering instructions to follow. Space is limited so please keep your RSVP status up-to-date. The 2/25 and 2/27 sessions are identical so please RSVP for one only.

This meetup will center around a build session with a recommended starter kit.  If you need a kit you can click on the link in red and order one below. Please place your order for the kit by Feburary 17th and I will be able to bring a kit to the meetup for  you.  We are adding value to the kit by providing you with a detailed manual on all the projects, and you can get all the help you need.   If you have an arduino already, contact us about the add-on kit to get all of the parts for the projects that we will work on.  The basic experiments in the kit include and introduction to LED, RGB Led for a spectrum of color control, Pushbuttons, Potentiometer, Temperature Sensing, Servo Control, Motor control.  You will learn how these can be combined and added onto for more experimentation.

Project Parts Basic Starter kit w LCD [does not include the UNO]

Here's a link to whats in the kit:  List of Components 

Looking for an advanced workshop? We are in the early stages of planning one for April so stay tuned.  The advanced workshop will center around projects in the recommend starter kit.

A little info about your excellent instructor: Glenn Mossy has forty years of taking things apart and building new things, with a special interest in all things robotics.  In his home hackerspace, Glenn currently is building a number of arduino based shields for robotics and enjoys introducing others to the fun of electronics.  Thirty years ago he gave his first presentation on motor-control for robotics at a conference with the International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED). Glenn holds a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University(1986).

    Glen, I have the Sparksfun inventor's kit https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12001 and a robotics shield from Parallax http://www.parallax.com/product/130-35000 . I signed up late, so I wasn't able to order you kit. Would I still be able to attend the class with these?

    Hi everyone! Looking forward to some Arduino fun and meeting all of you! Arrive as early as you can because parking is tight there's Parkmobile available if you can find a spot. Big Red building on the corner at 1800 Wyoming, go in the front steps and you will be going up 3 flights of stairs and we will be at the top. Remember to bring you laptops if you have ordered a kit, or have your own. Eight of you ordered a kit and I will have the kits for you at the meetup.

    We will be repeating these workshops again in March, and continuing with both introduction and advanced workshops starting in May using the same starter kit as a baseline.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
