We’re still working through exactly what will be presented on Saturday for Arduino Day, but here’s a rough idea… We can always adjust content based on the attending audience… And if more people show up in the afternoon or evening, we can always run through things again. We’re going to play this a lot by-ear.
We will be running an Arduino project challenge contest! Using an Arduino (or related micro), along with any resources and tools in the Interlock space, and/or materials you bring yourself, what cool thing can you build? Some old hardware (printers, scanners, misc parts) will be available to take apart… Judging will happen at 9:30, points will be awarded for usefulness, niftiness, artistic quality, and technical depth… The winner(s) will get something, to be determined.
Throughout the day, we’ll have the doors open for all who want to visit and participate, or just check us and our space out. We’ll be around all day to help you with your Arduino project, or get help from you on our projects!
