Arduino Robotics Class
with Chris Walls
This 7-week course will teach users how to assemble the smart robot car kit and the uses for the UNO R3 controller board, sensors and modules. The LAFVIN robotic car learning kit is designed for beginners to learn Arduino programming and get hands-on experience on robot design and assembly. This kit the R3 Board includes HC-SR04 Ultrasonic Sensor, V5.0 extension board, Line tracking module, Bluetooth module, etc. You will learn the Line Tracking, Ultraviolet Obstacle Avoidance, IR Remote Control, Bluetooth Remote Control of Smart Car, and you can also extend other functions on this robot platform.
This class has an additional $40 to cover the cost of your kit.
Intro to Electronics
with Chris Walls
Electronics are fundamental to modern life. Using live lectures, videos, and hands-on labs, you will see how electronic devices, circuits, and systems work. After studying this course, you should be able to: work with electricity safely, measure and monitor electricity, manipulate voltages, currents and resistances in electronic circuits, identify and demonstrate familiarity with basic electronic components used in simple electronic circuits, understand direct and alternating currents, understand the physics of semiconductors, and predict simple electronic circuit performance.
Intro to Vector Graphics
with Jessica Nunno
In this 7-week course, high school students and adults will learn how to use the open-source software Inkscape. With a focus primarily on vector graphics, they will explore how vectors and raster images differ and will create marketing materials as a project for the class. For said project, they will design a business card, poster, and T-shirt.
Monthly Maker 1-Year Subscription
with David Mercer
Our Monthly Maker program brings you a guided maker learning activity every month! For each project, we will provide all the tools and materials you need to complete your own build in our makerpsace, plus instructor assistance as needed.
Projects vary from month-to-month, and are typically appropriate for teens and adults. Some projects are also appropriate for older children (ages 9-12), while others children will be required to observe an adult stand-in (for example, using the metalworking shop.)
This program is included in every full individual Huntsville STEAM Works makerspace membership (limit 1 per household for family membership). Typical drop-in rate for non-members to do a Monthly Maker project is $20 per month. This full year subscription for non-members brings you nearly $100 of savings over the course of a year!
