Homeschool Makerspace! Ages 11+

** This class will be held at the Boy Scout Sea Base in Naples (near Belmont Shore). **

This is a 4 week course.  THE place for homeschool makers, tinkerers, and DIYers!

Learn more about Arduino.  Whether you're new or experienced, explore how you can use this microcontroller in your projects.  October is Halloween!  Join in Halloween fun as we craft and program our way to Halloween displays and props!  A variety of projects will be presented and will use the 555 timer and the SparkFun Inventor's Kit.  Optional:  Families may purchase a SparkFun Inventor's Kit for $100 (includes tax and shipping) or purchase at http://www.sparkfun.com/products/11576 .  The format of this class is open lab.  If your child's schedule overlaps a bit, you can still join this class successfully.

    Hi Everyone,

    Just a reminder that I will be at the Sea Base until a bit after 5. The kids can all stay for an extended session if they'd like. We will have 2 8th graders from Rogers Middle School there. Whoo Hoo!

    I think I can do that Tricia. I am soooo busy right now and I just hope I remember. So if you can remind my kid(s) that would be great! :-)

      Great! It's the same day, and yes, I will remind him.

    On November 6th, I am having a second Arduino session at the Sea Base at 3:45. If your child is interested in an extended session, he can stay as late as 5:00 or even a bit after. It would be great to get the new student to meet your kids, and we can catch up on some of our projects...

      At no additional cost! Just in case you were wondering...
