Open Build, Show & Tell - July 10, 2012
Fab Lab - Open Build Session - 3:00 to 6:30 p.m.
The MCC-BTC Fab Lab is offering a special afternoon/evening open build session for Fab Lab members and non-members.
Bristle Bot Build
Looking or a fun little project you can share with kids? Bristle bots combine the fascination of robots with a few inexpensive and easy to find parts. To build this you can either buy one of the Radio Shack vibrator motors #273-0107 or bring a broken cell phone to harvest its vibrator, a 3 volt button cell battery, and a toothbrush. If you choose to harvest the vibrator motor from a cell phone plan on extra time and the need for some miniature size screwdrivers.
Show & Tell - 7 to 9 p.m.
We will be looking at how the new $35 Raspberry Pi computer could change the way students learn about programming or providing inventors with an easy way to create Internet enabled prototypes.
Show Us Your Project
As usual, bring your project out to show what you've been working on and share with our Show & Tell participants.
