gettin\' some learnin\'

There are two new classes here at NYCR!

Wind Micropower Workshop

Harness the wind for under $10! Using the most basic components, you too can gather electricity from a light breze. We’ll cover some of the basic ideas involved in generating power from wind, and we’ll each build a simple generator that will power a small light or charge a battery. Let’s start saving the world!

1 1/2 hours

Ages 10 and up welcome

Taught by Raphael Abrams. June 7th

Graceful Motor Control

It is not that hard to achieve graceful motion with a big motor. It just takes a small handful of common electronic components and a slightly larger handful of electronic tricks. We’ll learn about H-bridges, pulse width speed modulation, large transistors, servo feedback loops, electric braking, analog to digital converters, and more. Some understanding of the Arduino microcontroller is helpful, but not required. (If possible, please bring a laptop and an Arduino.)

Taught by Raphael Abram. June 8th

We hope you can come out and get some learnin’!

Our first class! We had a great time over here at NYCR doing some soldering classes. Everybody walked out of here with a beautiful LED blinky! It was a total success. Thanks to all who attended! If you’re interested in coming in for a class, check out the classes here. See you soon!

We’re beginning at the beginning with a few beginner’s classes. To begin:

Electronics 101: Lets make electronics fun! This is a class for the completely uninitiated. Repeat: no experience necessary! We’ll cover how to make a circuit, how to use a circuit, and what a circuit actually is. By the end of the three hour session you will be able to make a wiggling blinking wonderblob of your own creation. There are two sessions available:

Soldering 101: This is the place to start if you’re interested in making any kind of electronic project that you intend on making permanent, or that you intend on working at all in most cases. We’ll be making it easy for you. This class covers the practice and theory of good soldering, as well as safety. And as a bonus, there will be some super secret hints and tips that you can only get from a seasoned professional! There are three sessions available:


Soldering 102: Freeform! This is a more artistic and sculptural application of the skills you will learn in the soldering 101 class. This is great for very cheap and rapid circuit building. It’s also great for wearable and toy circuitry! In this method, you will skip the circuit board completely and make working circuits that are held together by their own mechanical structure. You solder the parts directly to each other. Sounds difficult, but it will be old hat within an hour if you come give it a try! No need to take the 101 class first. There are two sessions available:

Hope to see you there!
