3D Printing Workshop – Thursday June 16, 2016

Nick Conroy will lead a 3D printing workshop. We will have several printers available. Nick will discuss the basics of 3D printing and participants will learn how to create 3D models in Tinkercad. The printers will be available to print models, but the reality is that a single print may take a while, so some prints may need to be left for subsequent weeks. Tinkercad is a free online tool supported by Autodesk. In order to save your models, you need to set up an account at https://www.tinkercad.com  There will be a limited number of temporary accounts set up, but if you can set up an account in advance (click sign up in the upper right corner of the screen), that would help.

Arduino Workshop – June 9, 2106

Where: Clippinger 036, Ohio University, Athens OH.

When: 6-8PM

While this is the second week of the workshop, people who were not able to attend the first week are welcome. Much of the time will be spent on tutorials working at your own speed, and there will be plenty of people who can help you get rolling.

For those who were able to attend the first week, we will review some of the work from the first week and see what we can do to understand a little more about what was going on. There will be lots of latitude as to what you can work on, but for those who are interested, the focus will be on using the buzzers with various inputs.

As before parents are encouraged to hang around, especially for the younger kids. We will have a collection of kits, but feel free to bring your own if you have one.

Arduino Workshop June 2, 2016

Where: Clippinger 036, Ohio University, Athens OH.

When: 6-8PM

What: The Arduino Microcontroller is a small computer that allows one to easily interface with the world: light lights, sense buttons, run motors, …. This open-source design is one of the major fixtures in the modern-day Do-It-Yourself community. Our first two Maker gatherings of the summer will focus on the Arduino. We’ll have projects for both beginners and more advanced users. Workshops are for Middle School and High-school aged kids. Parents are encouraged to hang around, especially for the younger kids. We will have a collection of kits, but feel free to bring your own if you have one.

Makers Starting Up June 2 for 2016

We’re looking to start meeting on Thursdays beginning June 2. We will start with an Arduino Workshop for both beginners and advanced. Makers will meet in Clippinger 035 on the campus of Ohio University. In addition to learning about some neat technology, we’re looking forward to doing some building and physical “making” this summer! Stay Tuned and spread the word!
