Pilot FIRST® Tech Challenge Robotics competition in Shanghai

Time: Saturday, April 23, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm

Location: Shanghai American School, Pudong campus

International school team robots will compete in the pilot FIRST® Tech Challenge high school robotics competition, developed by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a U.S. based non-profit. Teams design, build and program robots to compete in an exciting, sports-like challenge. Reaching 250,000 students in grades K to 12 worldwide, FIRST engages students in science and technology learning and leadership and provides an opportunity to apply classroom concepts to ‘real-world’ engineering problems, work on open-ended challenges and create their own solutions. The event is free and open to the public. Contact Paula Joseph at [email protected] for more information.

For more information, contact Shelly Shen at [email protected] 13564738316 or Paula Joseph at [email protected] 18601794144

Hacking Cool Things with Microcontrollers with Mitch Alman

April 18th, 2011 § 4 comments § permalink

I Love My Job! 我热爱我的工作!

来自美国San Francisco的大牛黑客Mitch Altman呼吁我们去做自己想做的事,如果每个人都热爱他的工作,这样世界就会变的更美好! Mitch Altman发明了TV-B-Gone(可以关掉任何电视的遥控器),他会发明这个遥控器是因为他发现自己和周边的人都是“电视控”,突然觉得自己浪费了太多宝贵的时间在做没有意义的事情。他说:“根据调查有80%的美国人花了一生中1/3的时间来做不喜欢的工作,花1/3的时间来睡觉(梦想自己想做而没做的事),然后把剩下的1/3时间花在看电视上”,所以他觉得这个社会需要改变对电视的依赖!他的TV-B-GONE一开卖就卖了20几万个,他也从爱好中赚了钱。 如果你不爱你目前的工作,那你就改花点时间好好的思考你想做什么,然后勇敢的朝着梦想前进!

XinCheJian and Xilinx

April 15th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Kevin Xie from Xilinx (University Program Greater China manager) came by to visit XinCheJian last Sunday as he’s very interested in helping Hackerspaces in China. He sees Hackerspaces like XinCheJian as a potential opportunity for students to apply the knowledge they gain in university in real devices while inspiring them to do cool stuff. Xilinx programmable logic devices is what is powering many industrial strength devices and an important building block in any larger project. Xilinx offer capabilities that complement micro-controllers very well when continuous signal processing is needed. This could offer us interesting alternatives to real-time sensors data processing and actuators control in a very compact package. ]]>
