Sunday 10/9/11 1PM - 4PMThis class will introduce students to the Arduino Microcontroller – a powerful platform for developing hardware that interfaces with the physical world. The class includes an electronics kit and an Arduino Microcontroller.
Sunday 10/16/11 1PM - 4PMStudents will learn to design, etch, drill and assemble a custom printed circuit board using Fritzing and the "Toner Transfer" method. Students will make their own LCD and Keypad "shield", compatible with the Arduino Microcontroller.
Sunday 10/23/11 1PM - 4PMIn order to particpate in the internet of things it's important to understand the basic principals of REST based web services. This overview will help you determine what skills are needed for these kinds of projects, and run through a basic example of getting information into Thingspeak.com and Pachube.com.
Saturday 11/5/11 1PM - 4PMThis class is for anyone who wants to take the first step into hobby electronics, or took a class in Arduino and would like to refresh their basic electronics knowledge. We will teach you how to prototype simple circuits and help you to understand how they work.
Saturday 12/10/11 1PM - 4PM
This course will provide an introduction to microcontrollers and the Arduino environment. Students will be using a chipKIT microcontroller, a very powerful Arduino-compatible microntroller that provides many advanced features not available on other Arduino-compatible boards. More information coming soon...
