Today we have a reminder for a couple of upcoming classes hosted by the SparkFun Education Department.
The first class is Microcontrollers for Educators and is taking place on December 29th, 2012. This is an all-day (9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) class designed to help educators make electronics part of their classrooms.
In this class, you’ll learn the basics of Arduino using the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit. We’ll also discuss LilyPad and E-textiles. Lastly, we’ll build the Simon Says Kit and talk about approaches to hacking it. This class is good for 1.0 semester credit hour through the Colorado School of Mines with an additional payment of $50.00 to be paid at the time of the class. Paperwork for the credit will be made available at that time.
The other upcoming class is the Simon SMD Soldering Class. In this class, you’ll learn the ever-important skill of surface-mount soldering by building your own Simon Says SMD Kit. This class takes place on January 16, 2013 and will last from 6 p.m. to around 10 p.m. (depending on your soldering skills).
