Box Project Club (Dec.) – It’s an IoT Christmas!!

In the latest installment of the Box Project Club, we’ll harness the power of the ESP8266 computer chip to create a strip of Christmas lights for your tree that you can control with your cellphone – from anywhere in the world!

If this is your first time with IoT, don’t worry one bit! The chip we’ll be working with is 100% Arduino compatible! But this WiFi-connected microcontroller can be controlled anytime/ whywhere, because its part of a WiFi network. So you could turn your Christmas Tree Lights on from your smartphone  – or from any internet browser on the planet! This way, if you have relatives that have to be away for the holidays, they can take part in the fun at home too!

This project will require students to solder, write code (Arduino and HTML) and get creative with colors.  No experience is necessary, though!!!

The event will take place on Saturday, December 16th at 9:30 am in our Labs at 425 Farifield Avenue. Signups are due by midnight December 8, to give us time to order the parts!

All proceeds go to supporting Rippowam Labs.
