We are excited to announce that our next Spacebrew workshop at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) is coming up on May 11th. This is the second installment of our workshop series, which is part of the After the Museum exhibit.
Space is limited so make sure to sign-up for the event on meet-up as soon as possible. The workshop will take place on the 6th floor, in a room with beautiful views of central park. You will also get free access to the entire museum.
Here is a quick overview of the day's activities:
- We will begin with a 30-minute overview of Spacebrew, which will cover why it was created and how it works, followed by a few live demos.
- Then we'll dive into an hour long hands-on workshop where we will take participants through our a tutorial for connecting an LED strip to Spacebrew using Arduino and Processing.
- After the workshop we will hang out for a few hours to help people who are interested in learning about more advanced uses of Spacebrew, and who want to integrate Spacebrew into their personal projects.
- If you want to a Spacebrew project on which you've been working, let us know and we'll try to carve out 5-minutes for you after the workshop.
You don't need to have any previous experience with Processing or Arduino to take part in the workshop. The workshop will be a little challenging for you, if you've never written any code before. However, if you are up for the challenge we'll help you through it.
We will bring a few Arduinos, breadboards and components for participants to use in the workshop, however, we will not be able to provide laptops or computers. Please note that people will have to work together in groups, as we won't have enough components for everyone. Feel free to bring your own gear, just check out the tutorial to see what basic components to bring.
