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/

SHARC at Deep Space Maker Night! (Instructables-Portable Solar Cell)

*** Note: This is a joint Meetup with the Deep Space Meetup Group. Brian Dickman will be running this Meetup ***

We were selected again to host another Maker Night for Instructables.com. The March Instructables night will feature the Portable 5W Solar Cell from Brown Dog Gadgets. Our goal will be to learn about the product and come up with two awesome inventions that use this product and post them as Instructables. (Check out their site and come to the meeting with ideas and inspiration! http://www.browndoggadgets.com/collections/solar-camping-gear/products/5w-folding-usb-solar-cell)

SHARC at Parker Rover Rally

Bring the family and the robots out for a great day.  The Parker Rover Rally is a Hands-On Robotics Expo and Robotics Competition.

SHARC is one of the sponsors of the Parker Rover Rally on May 16, 2015.   We’ll be looking for SHARC members to come compete and help organize and run the Rover Rally. The robotics competition includes 3 events:

1. The Barrel Race – Robots will autonomously complete a figure 8 around two large barrels without hitting the border walls.

2. Closest to the Pin – Robots will autonomously drive a long distance and attempt to stop directly on a target

3. The Long Jump – This is a user-controlled event.  Robots will fly off of a launch ramp and compete for distance.

Next Competition:
