Fall 2016 news: An 8-week noncredit mini class/workshop in Apps, Arduinos, and Sensors which will meet Monday’s 4-5pm in Garage starting 10 Oct ending 28 Nov.. In this class, the student will have an opportunity to learn to write an Android app, program an Arduino computer (Google it if you don’t know what that is), and to connect those devices to various sensors for science and for e.g. Internet of Things (IOT) applications. The enrollment will be limited to 10 committed students who are Garage members and able to make all class meetings. There are no prereq’s though some programming experience of some/any kind would be helpful. A personal interview with Jim is required. Contact him at mcglade@wisc.edu to express your interest.

Garage Physics

The Garage Physics lab in B613 Sterling Hall is a makerspace for student-driven interdisciplinary innovation. Garage offers UW-Madison students an unstructured safe environment to explore technologies and to develop creative ideas through project-oriented just-in-time learning. Want to make something or make something happen? You have come to the right place.

Garage Physics is described in the UW-Madison communications story http://news.wisc.edu/24040, the WKOW news story http://www.wkow.com/story/30139090/2015/09/29/students-create-inventions-of-the-future-in-uw-madison-garage , the Badger Herald story https://badgerherald.com/news/2015/10/13/tinker-away-garage-physics-helps-realize-student-inventions/, and the College of Letters and Science 2015-16 Annual Review https://issuu.com/uwmadisonls/docs/lsar_final_8.31.16_forissuu.
