Folks, We are going to try an Arduino Workshop at our little Language School here in Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico. We have space for 12 students. Each Student will have their own PC with an internet connection (for going to arduino.cc or Jeremy Blum videos, etc..).
Students will be required to purchase a bare bones arduino uno kit. Depending on sponsor dollars received to purchase the kits for the students, it will be somewhere between $250mxp -$400mxp. Response has been good for sponsors, so we really are hoping to get it down to $250mxp per kit. Kits belong to the student.
For the month of June...attendance is free. We are just looking at the interest among young people to take the class... and retired engineers/techs/tinkers in assisting the students.
Targeting June 3 to start. Young people can only text on their cel fones and visit facebook so many times over the long hot summer. Likewise, Retired people can only do so much fishing and drink so much beer over the same long hot summer. Here's an effort to point each group at more productive endeavors.
