Celebrate the rise of our robot overlords by building their bartenders! Curious how a proper cocktail is made? Wonder how you can make a machine to do your bidding? Come to the first ever hackathon for building cocktail robots! In this program, you will learn the art of moving fluids from point A to point B in unusual ways! Hopefully the end result is something tasty! The program will be a combination of presentations and hands on, so you can touch hardware and play with code.
What to bring: A computer, and an Arduino, Raspberry Pi or micro controller of your choosing.
What we bring: Sample hardware and fluid pumps, access to Python code.
How much? $10 gets you in the door. $30 gets you your very own peristaltic pump to take home, plus admission.
Plus! While supplies last, each participant will also get a $20 gift certificate donated by our good friends at Adafruit!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
