• July Arduino Meetup Cancelled
    This event was canceled.
  • Arduino 101 Workshop
    The June Arduino meet up is going to be a hands-on workshop for anyone new to these micro controllers. Using the Maker Kit from Particle ( https://particle.io ), the basics of a micro controller and how to program it to perform some basic functions will be introduced in this hands-on introductory session. Particle produces devices that are very similar to Arduino, and what you will learn will translate easily to working with Arduino. You can reserve a Maker Kit for $10 (retails $89), and it will be yours to take home. Please register at https://bit.ly/2sNtqXj. We have limited number of kits available. We will also introduce some of the ancillary devices, and introduce you to web sites and resources that is available for you to continue the learning and experimenting on your own. We will be in a computer lab where the workshop will be conducted. You can also bring your own laptop and/or your own devices according to your preferences. But the instruction will be based on the Particle device. The instructor will be Justin Grammens from IoTFuse and Lab 651, and the co-founder of the original Arduino group. He also currently teaches at St. Thomas. If you want to reserve a kit, you MUST register for the event at https://bit.ly/2sNtqXj

  • May 2018 Meetup
    This month, Debbie and Danny Leung will present the Arduino controlled fun banner they built for the MakerFaire last year. "Danny and I wanted to make our banner’s theme stand out in our MakerFaire booth last year so we created an Arduino controlled banner with two Neopixel rings housed in a 3d printed heart, a servo motor driving an extruder of a fake 3d printer made of cardboards, and two gear motors driving gears in the letterings MakerCare made of cardboards." After the presentation and the Q & A, we will continue on with our group project of building an interactive LED-based Tetris game that started in March. 6:00 PM Network, light snack 6:30 PM Presentation, Q & A 7:00 PM LED Tetris game project Hope to see you here!

  • Project Planning
    • What we'll do After some discussions and a meeting, we are proposing some projects that this group can help to design and implement. We hope also to involve our youth. Some of the ideas proposed: Tetris blocks XY-plotter Automata (a mouse or some other figures) POV clock Interactive music wall Self-sufficient plants Motion activated music/piano stairs Wearable Tech We will decide on a project, then design the circuit, and determine materials needed. Sorry in switching to a Monday, but Stephen is going out of town the next day for a whole month, so we will just switch this time, and switch it back the following month. Snacks will be provided. • What to bring Your own ideas and suggestions, curiosity, and knowledge.
