Wednesday's workshop and thereafter
Unless I have a strike of genius between now and Wednesday, we'll be making Wheel of Fortune inspired spinner.. The faster you spin your potentiometer (odd looking plastic thing), the faster the LED wheel will spin. If you bring a speaker to tear apart (old pairs of headphones work well), in addition to your breadboard, laptop, and Arduino if you've picked it up, you can add that fun clicking noise as it spins
The week we come back, we'll do workshops on hacking, digital devices (like computer keyboards), IEEE standards (this one is actually going to be a lot of fun), and a final one of project design.
The last workshop (project design) will lead us off into the project nights (more about those later). I'm going to try to see if I can get some local engineers to help you out in this one and hopefully the project nights as well.
