June meeting topic: Robotics and gardening
Learn about a garden that can grow even when you're out of town!
Keith Weber of Dragon R&D will be our guest to discuss and show how robotics can be used to help create an aquaponic or hydroponic system; it can even run on solar power. Learn basic tips for getting started.
This part describes the circuits using the four regulators and the loads described in the first part
This switching regulator provides 500 mA of current to the circuit. This makes it ideal for small electronic circuits that don’t demand much. It has a peak current output of 1.5 A which means that it can provide 1.5 A of current, but only for a short period of time.
Attached is a PDF file of the cover of the issue that features the Parallax Mini Sumo article that a team of ChiBots members put together late last year. Congrats to all!
Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, IL is planning a "Don't Tell Mom" program for June 14, in which we'll have hands-on science, tech, hardware, etc. activities for kids and their parents. We want to do things that are cool and "dangerous".
