NASA SATELLITE PROJECT
On Friday, June 10 at 10 am, come hear Clyde Springen, ACC Professor of Engineering and Astronomy, present “Space Project For ACC Makers (SPAM) - Space Communications And Telemetry.This Arduino-based satellite project is NASA-funded and project managers are looking for students to help out.
NEW PARTS & PROJECTS
Boxes are arriving daily at the BatLab with new parts for our summer projects, which include:
- A smart miniature house for everybody to add lights, sensors, motors, and Internet connectivity. Make our house the smartest in town.
- Hacking an,automatic candy dispenser. Motion sensors are boring - what should our dispenser respond to?! Vision? Speech? Tweets? A kind email?
- GPS modules: One of these is available to check out and take home. What do you want to track?
- Little Bits: Fun with electronics, no wires or programming needed. Just click the magnetic parts together and learn about circuits!
