Arduino Hackathon Open House

Explore electronics, coding, and creative technology at our monthly Arduino hacking session for all skill levels. You must bring a computer with a USB port to use an Arduino!

7:00-7:30 Tour the MakerBar, set up workstations.
7:30-8:00 Get inspired by Lightning Talks on projects, tricks, hardware, etc.
8:00-9:30 Guided instruction on the Project of the Month

Project of the Month: Fridge Alert! Protect your leftovers with this snack-safeguarding siren that sounds the alarm when the fridge is opened. Learn to use analog sensors, clicky buttons, speakers, and batteries to make a self-contained project. Borrow materials for free, or take them home for $15.

This event is free for everyone. To participate in the Project of the Month, you must RSVP and bring a computer with a USB port. There may not be enough materials to accomodate walk-ins!

Arduino boards might be available for $30 each. To pre-order one, PM Zack Freedman and we'll have it waiting for you.

MakerBar volunteers will be present to help you with your electronics project, even if you're not taking part in the Lightning Talks or Project of the Month!

You're welcome to come hack on whatever you'd like, even if it's totally unrelated to Arduino. There will be plenty of awesome hackers from our community for you to meet.

The Arduino Hackathon runs on the second Wednesday every month and is organized by Bert Hartmann and Zack Freedman.

    We were hoping to be able to acquire arduinos to have available for purchase, but are unable to. We'll do what we can to have some to borrow.

    I'm gunna bring all my PIC programming stuff to try to convert people back to PIC from Arduino... arduino is too expensive and large it even runs on an AVR chip... why not just use AVR? Shields? You can only use onme at a time and it can be done easier. Arduino... $30 ... PIC .... $5 .... THERE ARE C AND BASIC COMPILERS FOR PICS!
