3D Scanning Campus Crawl

February 3, 2017 - 10:00am to 11:00am

Join us for a walk around campus designed to help you find great subjects for 3D scanning using photogrammetry and AutoDesk Remake, a software freely available through OU IT. Have a favorite sculpture? 3D scan it! Meet at the EDGE in the Bizzell Memorial Library and bring a phone with a camera, DSLR camera, or point-and-shoot camera. Download ReMake to your personal device, if you'd like to continue making your own 3D models.

Introduction to 3D Scanning Workshop

February 6, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this workshop, you will learn the basics of scanning objects into 3D. We’ll focus on how to identify good subjects and how to get started using photogrammetry, laser scanning, and the structure sensor. We’ll also discuss the best ways to begin editing, viewing, and sharing your 3D models.

Introduction to Microcontrollers Workshop

February 13, 2017 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

In this workshop, you will learn all you need to know to begin working with microcontrollers. We will begin by introducing simple circuits, the Arduino microcontroller and its programming language. We will compare and contrast the Arduino UNO to the Sparkfun Redboard. 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.

Collaborative Learning Classroom (LL123)

MLA8

February 15, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

How do you cite a clip from a YouTube video or an episode of Dancing with the Stars? An Instagram post or a tweet? A recipe found on Pinterest? The 8th edition of the MLA Handbook provides a new way of thinking about citation that makes it possible to reference just about anything. Come learn about the new flexible “container” concept behind MLA style, and why sometimes there is more than one right way to cite.
