Just started your summer break and want to create something cool? Have special interests in electronics and want to know more about what Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Majors are doing? Or do you want to add some special flavours to your life? Join the Arduino workshop specially designed for beginners!

During the three Ardruino workshop series, you will get introduced to contents related to micro-controllers such as Arduino and what you can do with Arduino, includes:

1. Learn about a few fundamental electronic parts, how they work, and how they could possibly be applied to your own project. 2. Learn some basic programming, including variables, conditionals and loops.
3. Learn how to apply different electronic parts in 5 interesting projects
4. Learn how to make a slightly more complicated project: an electronic lock in the final workshop At the end of the workshop, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge necessary to start your own project!

Workshop Fee:
Arduino Kit with Basic Components (special discounted price) : RMB210 原价300
Each of the 2 hours workshop is RMB150 (member), RMB200 (non-member)
All three workshop package cost: RMB 710 (3 workshops with kit and 1 month XCJ membership)

William’s Internship Review

July 28th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

After 2 weeks of full internship at Xinchejian, I’ve gained valuable experiences which I couldn’t have gotten at school. At school, it was more about pure academics, from Physics to Chemistry, everything was more theory-based, rather than physical. However at Xinchejian, I was lucky to play with hardware.

Even though there were more cleaning than tech stuff at Xinchejian, I still loved working here. Taking computers apart, assembling them together, playing with battery pinouts… They seem too mundane to be actual tech skills,but I still learned a lot from those activities.

Before I leave, I want to thank some of the people here at Xinchejian.

Thanks Amanda for providing me with such an internship.

Thanks Ricky for assigning tasks and motivating me to make physical stuff.

Thanks Lio for teaching me technical stuff ( Ex: checking battery pinouts, php questions.. and so on. Sorry for all the disturbances I made)

Thanks 老豆 for being very friendly with me and teaching me different kinds of tools and components.

If I have time after stupid SATs, I would definitely visite here again. Not as a intern but as a real member :)

William Kim Internship Review

July 28th, 2015 § 0 comments § permalink

XinCheJian (新车间) had the pleasure to welcome William Kim, an high school student at SMIC Private School, as a XinCheJian intern to our space for over 100 hours between July 15th and July 27th 2015 at our Hero Center location (Jing’an, Shanghai).

XinCheJian is a community space focused on technology that provides its members with a space to work on their project, Internet access, tools and components in an atmosphere focused on making. As the space sees heavy use daily by members, it’s essential for us to have people in charge of the space to help and interns are very appreciated in that role.

In school, William had already shown great leadership being president of both the computer sciences and the sciences club. He’s planning on pursuing studies in Computer Sciences or Electronic Engineering abroad so was looking for a volunteer internship relevant to his interests. To that end, he already acquired skills in programming and Arduino microcontrollers which are very useful within an Hackerspace.

William first took on the space as a project in itself, completing over 50 different individual tasks. Increasing entropy is a natural state of things, especially in an hackerspace that sees many projects and many contributions. Regular cleaning and sorting is required to get the handle on the chaos.

First set of tasks he took on covered a massive and much needed cleaning and installing of new shelves to allow better sorting of the electronics components that followed. Another good organization innovation was the labeling of the rental storage boxes to track usage.

Another significant tasks was around XinCheJian computers: from testing the donated computers to making sure that as many of them were functional with Internet access.

In addition, he’s taken the initiative in promoting the space through videos and welcoming personally members to the space, introducing them to the hackerspace. He signed up 7 new members to the space. He also supported the Arduino workshops organized by Yu, another intern.

William’s contributions, completing his Objectives and Key Results set at the start at 100%, have made the space more efficient and a better working space for all makers. William’s work ethics, knowledge and initiative were impressive and all the senior members that have worked with him believe he has a bright future ahead of him.

Saturday, a warm sunny day after some rain last week, it’s 34 degree celsius today, but it won’t stop our enthusiastic makers to come and join the Arduino workshop. Enjoy these snap shots from the workshop, and big thanks to Yu and William who is our host for this!
