Intermediate Arduino Course – 18 October

0

This class is for anyone who understands the basics of the Arduino Single Board Microcontroller and wants to take their projects to the next level.   You will learn to write sketches that fully take advantage of the capabilities of the Arduino.  You will also learn new ways make your Arduino communicate with other devices.

As part of the course, you will build an Arduino weather station with temperature, humidity and pressure readings. Data get saved to a SD card and will also be displayed in real time on a LCD screen. A RTC will keep track of date and time.

Software Freedom Day 2014 – Tsakane

0

A bunch of us celebrated Software Freedom Day this year at a very special school, African School For Excellence in Tsakane (near Brakpan).  The day was a tremendous success, with 106 kids attending (on a Saturday!!) our technology roadshow.

 

The day started at 9.30 with Jay (the school’s founder) introducing us to the learners (a very special experience – all of us got cheers, even the software developers!).

The day started with Jay introducing us and explaining the day to the learners

Then the group was split into three, rotating through two classrooms, each with three tech tutorials.  The group not in either of the classrooms spent some time dreaming and scheming about their upcoming projects and interacting with demos in the tented area.

Tsakane School where H4H will be visiting on Software Freedom Day – 20 September

A bunch of us from House4Hack are going to go to African School For Excellence (in Tsakane) on Software Freedom Day (20th September 2014) to introduce the school kids to some tech! Check out the details on the kick-ass website that Raoul and Toby put together:

We want to expose the learners at ASE to empowering technologies like 3D printing, arduino, programming, open-source software, giving them an opportunity to learn those at their own pace. The way we do plan to do this is by leaving behind electronic kits, arduino, books, PCs, software, video tutorials, and more.

We are planning a number of talks to get the kids started:

Contact Schalk or Toby if you have some ideas for the day and/or want to come along.
