Make:KC Robotics Meeting - Wednesday February 22
Plan to attend Make:KC's bi-weekly Robotics meetings starting Wednesday February 22, 2012. If you bring a cheap 2D scanner found at thrift stores, we'll take them apart to explore useful parts you can salvage. Also, if you have a robot you're working on then bring it along and show others. We'll learn how you can build your own custom robot parts at the Fab Lab.
Do you take apart toys, appliances or electronics to see how they work? Are you interested in finding a way to make devices move or talk to each other? Are you looking for a way to learn more about robots for yourself or to help a child explore their interests?
Robotics is a great way to learn about the technologies we find all around our lives today. From hacking game controllers to using web cameras for image processing. Microcontrollers are everywhere and using the Arduino as a base platform gives us an affordable way to build our own interactive devices.
Come join the Make:KC Robotics special interest group as we build robots and explore technology. This is open to youth and adults both as part of our Life-Long Learning emphasis.
