Hello Makers,

We begin with maker demos. We want to see the cool stuff you all are doing! So email us if you have something you want to show off.

Then we continue our Arduino (http://www.arduino.cc/) projects with the Arduino Temperature Clock. This time the focus will be on programming. We will be taking in data from a temperature sensor and then feeding that data into Processing (http://processing.org/) and displaying it as a clock. In case you do not know what Processing is, it is the equivalent of Arduino but for a computer.

This is a great project for those of you who have bought an Arduino but have not quite known what to do with it. We will go through the steps for programming the Arduino, explain code syntax, and how to communicate with Processing. The workshop will be $10.

For this project you will need to:

) Download Arduino and Processing and install both programs on your computer (if possible - we can do a few installs at the meetup).

) Bring your computer

) ***Bring your own*** Uno (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardUno), Duemilanove (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardDuemilanove), or Mega (http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardMega2560) Arduino. (we will have a few extra to borrow for those who need it).

) Bring an A/B (flat to sqaure) USB cable (again we will have a few extra)
