Make:SF Jan 10th @ The Tech Shop

Hello Makers

To begin with we will do any project demos. So come and show off your projects! We want to see the cool stuff you're making. If you want to do a demo, email us and we will arrange for it. 

Then we start off our mini-projects for 2012 with Michael Shiloh and the Arduino Theremin! Michael Shiloh teaches at the Crucible and through his website Teach Me To Make and is an expert in all things Arduino. For those of you who do not know, an Arduino is an open source microcontroller that makes it easy to add electronics to your projects and a Theremin is a musical instrument you can play without touching it.

There is no electronic or coding experience necessary for this project.  This project is great for anyone who has been interested in making stuff with microcontrollers but does not known where to start. We will be soldering everything together on a wood and nails breadboard so you will get to see what each individual part does. Then we will program your circuit and make some music! So come practice soldering and learn some cool new stuff :) The workshop will be $10. 

NOTE: We will be providing all the parts for this project but if you have your own Arduino you can use that as well. If you do bring your own Arduino, bring a computer as well so you can do the programming. 

This fun-for-all-ages event starts at 6:30pm. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult.

    Had a fantastic time! I learned how to solder and really enjoyed working on the arduino project. I was new to this, and everyone was so helpful in getting me up to speed and teaching me the right way to do things. I can't wait till the next one.

    It was a very enjoyable workshop and I'm looking forward to coming back for another meeting down the line. Make:SF provided all the necessary components and they were very helpful and patient when providing advice.

    TWO THUMBS UP [from one of the Parent & Child Combos]

    My girl followed directions and completed the task. I thought she was merely being a good sport about the night - but when we got outside of the event she began to approach strangers with her project - showing them every detail and explaining clearly what did what and why while demonstrating the spectrum. So, strangers all along Howard Street got an earful about "How great the class was!" tonight. Me? I knew that I would sink into the nerd-scene with total comfort: my entire lifetime I've always met with fun times anytime there is technology and nerds. Good humor, easy conversation and friends the next time we see each other.

    Many Thanks to the organizers! Your friendly & helpful natures kept us moving forward! This is an easy New Year's Resolution!
