The Hacker Space That all the Other Ones Call “Sir”

My first words When I saw the hackerspace at FamiLAB were :  O.  M.  G!  It was in a huge warehouse.  Not only that, it was full of 3D Printers, breadboards, circuit boards digitizers, computers, remote controllers, batteries, cameras, motion detectors, lights, microcontroller, processors, and just about anything else you can think of.  I attended an Arduino class.  An Arduino is a microprocessor that you can program to do just about anything.  A hackerspace is a place where you can take something electronic, and re-program it and maybe even rebuild it!  And a hackerspace is probably the best place to learn about Arduino.  I learned how to program an Arduino, and how to set up a circuit using a breadboard hooked up to the Arduino.  I learned how to controll an LED light to make it flicker on and off, I learned how to controll it’s brightness, and I even learned how to control it with a button!    This is a very inspiring, and amazing place, I can’t wait to go back there.

XLOGO

On XLOGO, I made an equilateral triangle and a square. I rote down some facts about them to help me. I used the XLOGO programing comands to draw them on the screen.
