AS220 Labs’ Make and Break workshops are a great way to get some hands-on hacking fun. Tonight (Wednesday, March 25, 2009), Tom Sgouros, Maker Faire Bay Area 2008 performer and editor of the occasional Make book, is presenting Make and Break: All About Motors:
When: Wednesday March 25th, 5:30pm to 7pm
Where: AS220 Performance Space
The real fun in electronics is when you can use a circuit to make things go. Come learn some basics of electric motors, including DC motors, AC motors, servos, and steppers with Tom Sgouros (www.sgouros.com). Guest appearance by Judy the robot.
This session is free if you want to come and listen. You’ll have to pay for materials if you want to complete the kit and take things home with you. Some sample motors will be available, which can also be purchased cheaply.
