This workshop is a follow-up to the Introductory Electronics Workshop hosted in the EDGE. We will build on topics already covered such as building simple circuits using LEDs and push buttons, serial communication. We will, again, make use of the Sparkfun Inventor's Kits used in the introductory workshop. Sensing analog signals from sensors such as temperature sensors, potentiometers, and ambient light sensors will be discussed. Also being discussed will be a few output devices; motors, servos, and buzzers. For more information and to register, please visit http://libcal.ou.edu/event/2338698?hs=a.
This is a workshop designed to introduce learners to the basic concepts/software behind videogame development currently being done to support virtual reality initiatives at OU Libraries. We will be discussing the hardware and software to create virtual learning environments, and will guide students through the steps necessary to create a simple app using Unity 3D software. For more information and to register, please visit http://libcal.ou.edu/event/2338889?hs=a.
*You will need to bring a laptop with Unity3D pre-installed (and registered) to fully participate in this workshop.
Come learn about 3D printing in this hands-on workshop. You'll learn about 3D printers, how they work and design a simple souvenir. Bring your laptop pre-installed with the CURA 3d print software and come create with us! For more information and to register, please visit http://libcal.ou.edu/event/2338566.
O.V.A.L. (Oklahoma Virtual Academic Laboratory) allows non-technical users to analyze/manipulate 3D models in virtual reality. Any model, from any field of study can be deployed across a network of headsets in a learning space where limitations concerning scale and perspective are all but nonexistent. Come learn how to use the OVAL to augment your scholarship with virtual reality! For more information and to register, please visit http://libcal.ou.edu/event/2338570.
