Salvius the Life-Sized Robot

Salvius is a six foot robot built using recycled parts.  (Learn more about Salvius at http://salviusrobot.blogspot.com/. Salvius’ creator, Gunther Cox, will visit Amherst Media to discuss the process of designing and building Salvius and then participants will be invited to help make him even more interactive. Come learn more about sensors, coding, and robotics as we all work together to make Salvius interact with his environment. Makers of all levels are invited to attend.

Adafruit Holiday Workshop

This event is open to all skill levels. You will learn the basics of soldering and programming while making a project to take home to keep or give away as a gift. We are asking participants to pay a fee to cover the cost of materials, but scholarships are available. Since soldering will be required, we will need parent permission.

Open Science Showcase

After you visit the Merry Maple, please consider joining us on Friday, December 5th, 6:30 - 9pm for the 1st Annual Town-Gown “Open Science and Making” evening at Amherst Media.

In this event, Amherst Middle School and 5-College students will be giving short presentations on electronics art and open science projects they have been working on over the last few months. We’ll close with an open community discussion on next steps.
