Sparkfun AVC 2015

Last year the SHARC club took home 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place, Crowd Pleaser and Best Dressed awards…to name a few. This year we are looking for even more fun and participation from the group. Make sure to join the Build Sessions hosted at Deep Space and join us for the competition in Boulder, CO.

SHARC Mentors – Help Rover Rally Students

The Rover Rally classes are branching out to span a wide range of skills and students need some volunteer mentors to be successful. Do you know Arduino hardware and programming? Anyone that can help install magnetic wheel encoders, gyros, Pixy cam and Multiplexer…and program it are encouraged to come help. SHARC is one of the sponsors of this event, so let’s get in there and help make it a success.

This is part of a class offered by Deep Space to help kids successfully compete in the Rover Rally…and hopefully part of the SHARC squad at AVC!

SHARC Sparkfun AVC Build Session

With the Parker Rover Rally behind us, we will turn our sights to the Sparkfun AVC competition. This meeting is intended to be a “working session” where people bring their robots and try to make some progress towards the upcoming competitions. Newcomers are welcome. Members work together to share ideas, advice, parts, inspiration and more. Come just the most active and exciting group of robotics enthusiasts in Colorado!

Upcoming Competitions:

Sparkfun AVC – June 20, 2015

SHARC at Deep Space Geek Lunch (Arduino)

*** Note: This is a joint Meetup with the Deep Space Meetup Group. Brian Dickman will be collecting $15 for this lunch (see below). ***

The Deep Space coworking space is made up mostly of technology folks. We work in various tech fields and play in technology as well. We wanted to create a time where we can all get together to learn new things, meet new people and share our experiences. We’d like to invite you to join us!

Our first meeting was lots of fun. We like the show & tell time, so we’ll be doing this first. It will be a great way to get ideas for future topics. (Remember, the presenter gets a free lunch!) Here’s a list of topics requested for presentation:

• AngularJS (presented by Garrett St. John)

• Arduino-based Rover (presenter TBD)

• Open Source Mapping solutions • Battery Technology

(let’s add to the list, get presenters and book the dates!)

The Agenda
11:30am – 12:00pm – Social time, Show & Tell (Order Lunch)
12:00pm – 12:40pm – Introductions and Presentation
12:40pm – 1:00pm – Q&A and Wrap-up

Cost:
$15/person (includes lunch: Burger or Chicken Sandwich with 1 side and a soft drink.) This fee will also cover a free lunch for the person that is our guest presenter.

Where:
We will be meeting at Deep Space, 11020 S. Pikes Peak Dr., Parker, CO 80138. View Map and Contact Info at http://www.deepspace.me/contact-deep-space/
