New members John and his son came to Workshop 88 yesterday for the Arduino 101 class. Before class they started printing a model of the Sears Tower that they had designed on their own in Sketchup.
The scale of the model is such that each floor is 1 mm tall. Pretty cool!
We had a great turnout for the electronics 101 class! It was so great to see everyone who came out to learn a bit about the fundamentals of electronics today. Big thanks to Eric, Paul and Bill who all helped out today with the class. Remember to sign up for the Electronics 102 class next week!
Have you been coming to Workshop 88 public meetings on Thursday nights? If you haven’t been yet, or it’s been awhile since you’ve been in, you may be surprised to see all the stuff that is going on at the meetings each week. Thanks to Workshop 88 member Bill Paulson for snapping the photos last week!
We’ll be scheduling more arduino classes real soon. Keep your eye out for these classes. And be ready to bring your ideas to Workshop 88 so we can build something together!
Workshop 88 is going to be at the Mini Maker Faire in Evanston on Sunday, August 5th! Tickets are now available for ordering on the MMF webpage. See you there!
One of our new members, Jay Kinzie, brought in a few of the things he’s working on: a raspberry pi hooked up to a lapdock and a few RC cars built out of LEGO Mindstorms.
