Live in the Vermont area? Check out this great workshop!
Just a heads-up: Friday January 11, 2013 is our favorite day of the year, Inventory Day. That means we’ll all be busy counting every IC, wire, and switch we have in stock, so orders won’t be going out that day. Our apologies for the inconvenience!
At the end of January, SparkFun's own Jeff Branson (from the Department of Education) is joining forces with the Vermont Makers to host an e-origami workshop. Vermont Makers is a community that shares an interest in the possibilities of micro controllers and open source hardware, encouraging independent projects that blend the arts and technology.
In this workshop, attendees will combine the ancient art of origami with embedded technology to explore new tools for both learning and teaching concepts in electronics. You'll also learn about embedding controllers, building switches, conductive thread, and conductive ink as materials. Attendees will explore traditional paper techniques as applied to the creation of more interactive crafts.
The class takes place January 21st, 2013 from 4-6 p.m. EST at the Miller Center Champlain College. You can sign up here. Hope to see you there!
