Did ya know? – Saturday Hacker Day Workshops

Hey everyone, did you know that every Saturday afternoon,  M5 is open for you to either make/build/hack/concoct any projects or participate in a workshop? Well now you do.

M5 is open almost every Saturday, from 12:00pm to 3:30pm. During this time, Sean Klaiber (EE’11), Edmar Goncalves (CSE’12), and I (CSE’12) facilitate a workshop on a particular topic. Previous topics that we’ve covered include: EagleCAD, the “Hidden-Sounds Band”, and most recently, the Arduino. The last Saturday, the workshop taught the basics of the awesome prototyping platform Arduino. We covered how to set it up, as well as digital and analog input and output.

But, just because there’s a preset workshop, it doesn’t mean that it’s the only thing you can do. You can also work on your personal electronics project–and we’re here to help with that too! Just let us know, and we’ll help you make something cool. For more information about the coming workshops, keep an eye out on Sean’s blog posts (it’s usually labeled “The Future”),  or contact him by email: smklaiber (at) gmail.com.
