Mini Maker’s Gather Saturday Morning for Hardware Interaction and Programmming

The Mini Makers, a group started nearly a year ago, gathered at the Morrison’s Cove Memorial Park Saturday morning to work on their Arduino Kits.  The Arduino Kit is used as a project to learn building, hacking, programming, and robotics.   Saturday’s session included programming servos which are used in robotics, RC cars, and many other things that we use on a daily basis.  Here, Jason Rhykerd explains how they can use different types of programming to interact with their servos.  Next month’s session will include building a Bristlebot which is made of a toothbrush, battery, and motor.  They will then challenge each other with a sprint, hill climb, and sumo event.  For more information on how to get involved with The Mini Makers, go to www.theminimakers.com or visit their facebook page at www.facebook.com/theminimakers.
