A Raspberry Pi is a very small computer; so what can you do with it? Lots of things, but once you experience the magic of your cat (or dog, or goldfish!) sending you selfies you will start to get a feeling for how to put this tiny, inexpensive computer to work in both practical and fanciful ways. This is a good workshop for starting with a Raspberry Pi. No pet ownership actually required. Laptop recommended.
Have you heard of Linux and want to know more, or you haven’t heard of Linux but the words “free operating system” spark your interest? Maybe you already know a little bit about Linux and want to learn the basics of how to use it; everyone is welcome at our Intro to Linux workshop! In this workshop we’ll cover a bit of background of who, what, when, and why, and then go into some details on the ways in which using the operating system differs from Mac and Windows. RBP computers for using and experimenting with Linux will be provided.
So you want to model things in 3D (be it for 3D printing, digital art, blueprints, or for video-game content) but you’re unfamiliar with how to do it or the software you’re using doesn’t give you the fine control you need. Come to our workshop. OpenSCAD is free, open-source software for detailed, programmatically defined, primitive based rendering software. If that sounds complicated, you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy and intuitive the software is once you get started. Please bring a laptop you can install software on.
In this 2-hour-long workshop, we will teach you everything you need to know about soldering to take your upcoming electronics project from the breadboard to the real world. We will learn about the tools of the trade and the techniques that will make your soldering solid and reliable. By the end of our workshop you will have built one or two fun projects you can take home, and we will show you where you can go from there!
