Hardware Work Shop

This term, we have four hardware workshops from EngSoc in partnership with the Engineering Ideas Clinic and RidgidWare. The first one was a beginner Arduino workshop which took place last Friday. Don’t worry if you missed out on it, we have a beginner / intermediate workshop on October 24 in the multimedia lab from 7:30 – 9:30 PM. In this workshop, we will cover working with a multitude of sensors.

We also have two robotics workshops on Wed Nov 9 and Nov 23 in the WEEF lab from 6:30 – 8:30 PM. The robotics workshop has a $40 signup fee and you can signup in the Orifice. The fee covers the subsidized robot kit which you get to keep after the workshop. The robot kit has motors, an Arduino, a sensor shield, a motor control board, an ultrasonic sensor, and more. In the workshop, you will get to build the robot and run some sample code. The robot is highly expandable with its sensor shield, and can be used for other projects after the workshop!
