    This Meeting:
    The robotics lab will be open for you to work.  This robotics club will be self directed as I will be getting Red Bison ready for competition on Saturday, but I will be there to answer any questions you have on your project.  This means there will be no class today and you will be working on your own project.  Also, the registration date for Robot Sumo is coming up and I would like us to concentrate on getting our Zumos ready for competition.

    Please take a look at the Zumo Pin Assignment and Project Worksheet.  The download links are at the bottom of the Robotics Club page.  http://makerspacefors...

    Homework:
    To prepare for our next meeting please look over the following examples in the Arduino IDE:

    Description:
    For those of you not familiar with the Lights for Kenya project, several months ago we built solar powered lights for 21 orphans in Kenya. These lights were to replace the kerosene lamps they were using to do their homework by. After several build sessions we were successful in getting them built in time for Meshack Simati to carry them there on our behalf.

    Meshack will be sharing with us about the impact that the lights we sent have had on the children in Kenya. He'll have a short presentation for us and will be available to talk and answer your question afterwords.

    Presentor:
    Meshack Simati
