Jewelry in this class means: small pendants, earrings, rings, anything that is metal and less than an inch and a half in diameter. Metals that work are stainless steel, copper, brass, nickel, and silver (but not aluminum). We won’t be gold plating chains.
This class is brought to you by Eric Knoll, creator of the Midas Touch kit. Check out the Kickstarter video to learn more.
Pssh, Valentine’s Day. Obviously the worst holiday, except for the February 15th chocolate sales. Those are pretty cool.
Join us in grumpiness on February 7th for an Anti-V-Day class! Ever had the urge to create a voodoo doll of that one ex with glowing “ow I just got stabbed” eye action? This is your chance! Learn how to make a soft circuits doll that lights up when you stick a pin in it’s cold dead heart.
Do you identify as a woman and have an interest in making games that are playable across web-capable devices? If so, NYCR & Code Liberation invite you to attend our Vector Graphics Game Development workshop using Processing!
If you’ve ever played an original Asteroids arcade game and thought “wish we could still make games that looked like that” Now we can! Trammell Hudson from NYC Resistor has developed some hardware that will allow us to drive the vector monitors to play a whole series of emulator games. We thought it’d be super fun to create original content for these gorgeous retro-graphic displays and were so excited we did a talk about it at this year’s Chaos Communications Congress: 32C3
This class is a collaboration with Code Liberation and is open to attendees who identify as women. As always, we ask that attendees read & abide by our Code of Conduct.
Come to the Arduino Special Interest Group on Thursdays, click here for more info, and do a self-paced study course over several weeks. We can provide you with all the items you need, coaching, patience and assistance with Adafruit’s online tutorial.
Email us at email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you’re interested. We will set up a special, focused beginner-friendly session to get you on your way quickly.
What is an Arduino?
Arduinos are a low cost, easy to use family of microcontrollers. Want to learn about the basic use of Arduino computers?
This is our special program for children. Events will vary, but the primary focus will be on the Art of Tinkering, which encourages learning through exploration of ordinary objects and re-using them in interesting and creative ways. Check the Maui Makers Calendar for specifics. Events are suitable for 3 and up. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult or guardian, who will be encouraged to explore with their child(ren).
The Arduino SIG meets to talk about arduinos and other small microcontrollers. Arduinos are a low cost, easy to use family of microcontrollers. We have been teaching classes on using them for several years. Now its time for the community to have its own Special Interest Group (SIG).
Come down and share your Arduino projects and ideas! Want to learn about the basic use of Arduino computers? We will be reorganizing an introductory class to a once-a-month schedule as interest demands. Want to learn more advanced techniques? Come down and talk story with fellow arduino users. Chances are there is someone who has already done something similar or is also interested in learning. Bring your project or project ideas. Come learn and share. If you don’t know Arduinos, you can find out basics and sign up for an introductory class.
3D Printing is a fantastic technology that lets you create parts at low cost form 3d-design files. Maui Makers has several 3D Printers in house (our own and on loan from members). We are currently printing e-Nable hands for youth on Maui. These low cost prosthetics are a great way to understand the power of 3D printing. Come on down to the makerspace and help out!
This coming Tuesday (Nov 3) at 7:00 PM, we have some amazing people from YourDuino.com coming by Makers Local 256 to give a presentation/demo/Q&A on Arduino microcontrollers and embedded electronics in general. They’re touring around the Southeast and ML256 is one of the many places they chose to stop by!
Their main objective is to talk to people about Arduino and what you can do with it. They’ll have some kits and parts available during and after the presentation, so if you don’t have an Arduino (or two) already, you can pick one up then. They’ll be showing off a neat display of a few different Arduino projects and circuits, so it should be interesting and fun!
They’ll be going through the entire process of designing, connecting, and coding up a simple Arduino project from start to finish. If you have any questions about your own project, they would love to discuss ideas and give help where they can.
There’s no cost to attend the presentation, but they will have parts available for sale if you need them. Anyone is welcome to attend!
