Greetings,

The Fuse Factory is hosting a workshop this Sunday that may be of  
interest to the readers of this mailing list. Here are the details:

Location: Wild Goose Creative (2491 Summit St. Cols OH 43202)
Time: 11:00am - 2:00pm
Workshop level: Beginner
Instructor: Shawn Auguston
Cost: $60 if you have an arduino, $90 if you need an arduino (children  
under 18 are FREE - two max, please)

In this workshop, participants will learn how to create a circuit  
design using CAD software and then etch their own printed circuit board  
(PCB). What is a PCB? Visit:  
http://www.ehow.com/about_5049713_pcb-board.html

In addition to creating a PCB, participants will use the PCB to create  
an RGB Ambient light that can be programmed with an Arduino  
microcontroller board.

This class involves the use of chemicals, so please wear old clothing.  
In addition, participants will need to bring a laptop. If you do not  
have a laptop, we have a few available. To reserve a laptop, please  
email us at info at thefusefactory.org.

You can preload the CAD and Arduino software onto your laptop prior to  
the workshop. You also have the option to have the instructor assist  
with software installation during the workshop. If you want to download  
the software prior to the workshop, please visit these sites:

Eagle Cad download: http://www.cadsoft.de/download.htm
Arduino IDE download: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
