Share Arduino servo workshop: making stuff move

Event Details

This workshop is for anyone who would like to make things move using hobby servos.  Atttendance is free and limited to 11 people. Beginners at any level are welcome, though ideally you will a very basic familiarity with Arduino (for example, you might have tried something like the arduino blink tutorial).

The workshop will be held at Hacklab (170a Baldwin St) 7pm-9pm April 18th. Hacklab is located in Kensington Market, a few blocks SW of College and Spadina. For directions see: http://hacklab.to/location/

In this workshop we will discuss hobby servos, how they work, and what they can be used for. Then we will use our Arduino (an open hardware platform) to control them. For those interested in working with robotics or making things move, controlling servos with arduino is a great first step.

Please bring:

 - A laptop (make sure you have downloaded and installed the Arduino Software: see arduino.cc )

 - An arduino (Creatron sells them on College St just a few doors east of Spadina)

I'll supply a variety of servos that you can experiment with. See you there!
