Getting started programming microcontrollers with CircuitPython is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Aug 3. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Want to learn Python? What about learning the easiest way to learn to code using a microcontroller?
Make Things Move: Intro to Motor Control with Arduino is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sun, Jul 28. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Have a project you want to make move? From RC cars, Robot Arms, or 3D printers, this class gets you started learning how to use a variety of motors. Learn about the different types of motors and make them move! This class will combine a discussion of motors best-practices as well as hands-on experience controlling them with an Arduino. Ticket price includes all the suppiles you’ll need (and get to take home!).
Intro to PCB Design is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 27. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
This class is a basic introduction to creating PCBs using Autodesk’s Eagle software. Students will learn how to use Eagle to go from a breadboard to a PCB design file that is ready to be sent out for manufacturing. This allows you to take your DIY electronics projects off of protoboards and to the next level. In this course, students will have the opportunity to select one of three pre-defined breadboard circuits to work from in designing their circuit board. By the end of the course students should feel comfortable designing boards for their own custom circuits.Students must bring a laptop computer with a free version of Eagle pre-installed. Eagle can be downloaded here:https://www.autodesk.com/products/eagle/free-download
NYC Resistor Artist-In-Residence Talk: Vanessa Rosa is taking place at NYC Resistor on Wed, Jul 17. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Vanessa Rosa was an Artist-in-Residence at NYC Resistor from May to mid July 2019. She spent most of the time experimenting with drawing machines, but also continuing her research on worldwide patterns and the need for scientific recognition of indigenous knowledge systems. During the talk, Vanessa will present some of her new work, describe a bit of her process and most of all, she will try to explain a bit of the research that sustains her art practice.
It might be a holiday, but we are open for the 4th of July at our usual time.
Sadly, there will not be any pyrotechnics, but come by for some good old fashioned craft night fun.
Watercolour – An Experimentation is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 13. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
I’ve been doing watercolours since I was a little child. Creating great images is as much about technical understanding as it is about developing a way of seeing, a way of being. I usually do watercolours on the streets, or at events, with a sketch book and a portable kit. I do it because I deeply love to do it.
Designing Feminist Interfaces: Smart Assistant Skill Building is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 6. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.
Technology is often described as ‘disruptive’, while it serves to perpetuate existing power structures. It’s not an accident, for instance, that our technologies that function effectively as “caregivers” or “secretaries” are designed to have female voices. What does it mean to imagine an alternative, feminist voice interface? Can we hack voice interfaces to be more feminist?
