Introduction to 3D Printing

June 1, 2016 - 11:30am to 12:30pm

Come learn 3D printing basics (hardware, software, design) in this hands-on workshop. You'll not only learn about 3D printers and how they work, but design a souvenir. Bring your laptop pre-installed with the CURA 3D print software and come engage with this powerful knowledge creation tool.

Introductory Electronics Workshop

June 6, 2016 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm

In this two-hour workshop you will learn all you need to know to begin working with microcontrollers. We will begin by introducing simple circuits, and the the Arduino microcontroller itself and its programming language. We will point you towards the Arduino website where you will find official Arduino documentation and example code. We will finish by blinking lights, sensing button presses, and implementing simple logic in code.
For more information about the workshop please read our Microcontroller Documentation.

*If able, please bring a laptop computer. Otherwise, the EDGE has a few that can be loaned for the workshop. 
*Prior to attending the workshop, please visit codebender.cc and create an account. After registration you will be asked to install a browser plug-in and to install some drivers. Simple instructions will be provided to help you do this.

Oklahoma LibTech Unconference

June 8, 2016 - 8:30am to 5:30pm

Librarians, programmers, and other interested parties who work in, or around, libraries, archives or museums are invited to a full day of collaborative, participant-driven discussion focused on using technology to build tools and provide services in the modern library. We expect to dive in to a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, things like: MarcEdit, linked data, content management systems, library data workflows and formats, digitization, maker spaces. Visit the Unconference site to see the full schedule and register online.

VR @ OU

June 14, 2016 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

O.V.A.L. (Oklahoma Virtual Academic Laboratory)​ allows non-technical users to analyze and 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.

EDGE Overview

June 21, 2016 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Participants will come away from this presentation knowing what tools and training opportunities are available in OU Libraries' Innovation @ the EDGE makerspace, and how they might incorporate the capabilities of the space into their existing scholarly pursuits. We will review examples of ongoing and completed EDGE-based projects including specialized 3D prints, VR applications, and inspiring Microcontroller projects.
