SCIL Public Meetup: Halloween Mechatronics with Microcontrollers

Have you ever wanted to bring life to your Halloween costumes or decorations? 

This class will teach you the basics of how to add motion, lights and sound to your Halloween creations. The class will teach you different ways of detect people or objects as they approach to trigger your spooky fun. You will also learn how to control motors or servos to have objects move on command, how to create sound effects and control lighting.

We're meeting here: http://goo.gl/maps/fTG0Y (The Community Center room at Super Stop & Shop, 36 New State Highway, Raynham, MA[masked])

    This class will focus on the technical challenges and will leave the creative applications to the students' imaginations. The class will begin with a short-moderate length lecture covering the different devices and how they work and then transition to a hands on session where the students can experiment to make their own implementation and seek advice from the instructor and others with experience.

    There will be a recommended equipment list provided on the meetup site prior to the class containing the recommended microcontroller and accessory boards. Students will be encouraged to share or work in groups during the hands on portion, so sharing of equipment will definitely be possible.

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.
