Final project resources
DH Hill Makerspace — attend workshops and book time & tech to work on your term projects (with the help of Jessica Handloff and/or Lauren Di Monte).
Adafruit Projects— helpful resource for critical making project ideas related to electronic prototyping via Arduino
Instructables— helpful for brainstorming any number of critical making projects
Sparkfun Projects— helpful resource for Arduino-based projects
Makey Makey Projects— helpful resource for brainstorming electronic prototyping via a Makey Makey resistive microcontroller
Sketchfab– Excellent resource for 3D modeling and printing
Thingiverse– Another great resource for 3D printing
Autodesk Apps– Please browse the free apps available at Autodesk. 123Dcatch is an excellent program for scanning 3D objects using a smartphone (the results are incredibly detailed if you take enough photographs). Meshmixer is also great software for editing a 3D model after it has been scanned. Tinkercad is a great platform for prototyping 3D models too. It is very easy to use.
Arduino (the coding environment for the Arduino circuit board system)
Twine (for making interactive fiction / text-based games)
