Get a text message when your plants need watering!

There’s still room in our Internet of Dirt class this Saturday. We’ll talk about the Internet of Things as a general idea, what kinds of Internet-connected devices you might want to build, and how you can plan your own projects. You’ll learn how to connect your project to the Internet, send HTTP requests, and interact with sensors. We’ll set up a basic soil sensor and program it to message you when your plant needs watering!

Tickets are on Eventbrite.

Make-Alongs are self-guided craft workshops where participants learn new skills, explore new materials, and make great things! We’ll see you on Sunday. 🙂

In this hands-on introduction to through-hole soldering, you’ll learn how to use a soldering iron safely and effectively, and get plenty of practice with both soldering and desoldering techniques. We’ll be soldering up some Game of Life kits – LED tiles that generate nifty animations. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
