    EEE103: Arduino Part 1 - Building An Arduino - Educato

    The Arduino is a microcontroller; a small computer that has a single function. Microcontrollers run everyday items like toaster ovens, electronic toys and MP3 players. An Arduino can be programmed to monitor sensors and watch for inputs like temperature, pressure, light, voltage or a button or switch. It can also be programmed to control switches, relays, motors and other outputs. There are many add on boards, called shields, that add features like WiFi, GPS and card readers.

    Electronic "smarts" can be added to projects to make them interactive. For example, a pet door could be modified to lock if it's dark outside and the temperature is below 45 degrees.

    This class is the first step in using the Arduino: soldering the parts onto the circuit board. Come to class with some basic soldering experience and get help and guidance while assembling the board.

    Materials fee includes an Arduino Educato that you keep for your own projects.

    FAB106: Sand Blasting and Powder Coating SBU

    Powder coating is a durable, simple to apply, easy to clean up, product. It is inexpensive, and more environmentally friendly than paint, as it has no VOCs and no solvents are used. The final product is more durable than paint, and powder is available in many colors and finish types.

    The sand blaster can be used on metal, wood, glass, mirror, plastics and almost any material that is rigid. It will remove paint, rust and mill scale, as well as cleaning welds. (The parts must be baked at about 400 degrees for 15 minutes, so it will not work on magnetic items, or anything with grease in the part, like bearings.)

    In this Safety and Basic Use class, you will learn how to use a cabinet sandblaster to prepare a small metal part, clean and coat it with powder, and then bake it on in the powder coat oven. There is only time in class for sandblasting steel and aluminum parts.

    Note: The sandblast cabinet and powder coating oven are large enough for motorcycle frames, bicycles and many other bulky items. Please visit your local TechShop and check the oven size if you have a specific project in mind.

    Because of possible shock (high voltage, low amperage) with a powder coating gun, members with a pacemaker, or any voltage sensitive medical equipment are not allowed to take this course or use the equipment.

    Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!

    WOD304: Advanced Woodworking - Joinery

    Wood joinery is the foundation of building furniture and wooden structures. Joints can be very simple and purely functional or they can be complex and elegant, requiring a master level of artistry and skill to produce.

    In this class, learn joint-making techniques as well as highly valuable theory and background information as they apply to joint making. Learn when to use certain joints, which joints are the strongest, how grain direction influences joint strength, glue selection, pre-gluing techniques, proper clamping and much more. This class will provide the foundation needed to create virtually any wood structural project.

    Class time will be split between discussing theory in the classroom and learning joinery techniques and creating joints in the woodshop.

    Prerequisites: Successful completion of WOD101 - Woodshop and WOD201 - Planer, Jointer and Router Table Safety and Basic Use (SBU) classes.
