WKS011: Internet of Things

Have you been wondering how to connect your toaster to the Internet? Or maybe you've been curious about the buzz going around.

This Internet of Things (IOT) workshop will be a great introduction to the world of connected devices. We'll provide background on the IOT world and help you dream up devices you may want to build on your own. We'll also cover basics of electronics and microcontrollers as well as the basics of building a simple web app to control an RGB LED.

Participants will each get their own Electric Imp, a WiFi-connected module with some inputs and outputs to build a basic IOT object.

It is recommended that students have taken basic electronics or Arduino I before the class but not necessary. Before class, participants may wish to sign up for a free account at Weebly.com and ElectricImp.com to prepare for the class.

WKS400: Make Your Own Stamped Glass Coasters

TechShop Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Glass Center join forces to present this exciting 2-day workshop where you can make your own stamped glass coasters.

On the first day, visit TechShop where you will design and create your very own metal stamp perfect for branding anything from steaks to molten glass. During this session, you'll design a simple vector image to be cut out of steel sheet on the high-powered CNC water jet cutter. This machine cuts through material using pressurized water!

On the second day, bring your stamp to Pittsburgh Glass Center and mold, shape and stamp your set of four coasters. You will also be able to view a glass blowing demonstration and discuss the other uses of metal stamps and molds with art class.

Seats are limited! You must register through the Pittsburgh Glass Center website
