To join any of the Arduino Uno micro-controller sessions, it is essential for all participants to bring their laptops. This will enable them to code their Arduino projects using the C++ language. To have the necessary software, please make sure to download the Arduino IDE Software before the class. You can find the download link right here:  The First Session(July 7th) will primarily focus on configuring the software and settings to facilitate seamless Arduino coding experiences for everyone, encompassing tasks such as LED blinking and utilizing a DC motor.  Subsequently, the ensuing classes will commence the construction process. Session 2an incredible creation awaits you: a ferris wheel constructed using a cutting-edge stepper motor technology and equipped with convenient push buttons. Prepare to be amazed as you embark on a thrilling ride unlike any other. Session 3the other arm will have a servo motor and a potentiometer input. Session 4You will discover how to construct a catapult equipped with a range sensor! Caz, a cherished companion and seasoned presenter at our establishment, possesses a profound passion for do-it-yourself projects. She takes pleasure in imparting her extensive expertise in micro-controller integration!

*The participation in this course necessitates the possession of a laptop and the availability of parts worth around $100 in the store.

Guitar Pedal Workshops - Hosted by Matt Wilson

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to learn about guitar pedals from the renowned physics teacher, Matt Wilson!

12 Different Configurations of a Single Circuit: In this article, we will explore twelve unique variations of a single electrical circuit. Each variation is designed to tackle specific challenges and cater to different needs. By exploring these variations, we can gain a deeper understanding of how a single circuit can be modified and utilized in various scenarios. So, let's dive into the fascinating world of circuit configurations!

* This particular class does not mandate the inclusion of parts. However, should the participants desire to assemble their own, they have the option to purchase the necessary components from our physical store.

Mechanical / Robotics Classes with Nolan Dunne

Nolan is set to leverage our Tamiya kits available at the store for constructing a compact robotic drive-train! Each participant will have the opportunity to assemble their own diminutive (resembling a book in size) drive-train in the company of fellow enthusiasts.

*In order to participate in this class, it is necessary to have around $100 worth of parts that can be found in our store.

Bill Werzner offers a wide range of electronics classes for students of all levels.

The Houston Vintage Radio Association (H.V.R.A.) President, Bill Werzner, along with his colleagues, will be leading these introductory electronics classes that cover the fundamentals of electronic components and gradually progress to more advanced circuitry. Rest assured that the content of these classes will be unique and tailored to provide a distinctive learning experience.
