Tinkering Program

This program will take place at UIC and will give 20 undergraduate college students hands-on experience in programming and designing projects using Arduino micro-controllers and Raspberry Pi micro-computers.


MRDC - Robotics Team

For this project the team is working to design and build a robot that will go into the Midwest Robotic Design Competition(MRDC). The robot needs to accomplish a list of tasks throughout the competition. Examples of these tasks are: pull a rope downwards, pick up a ball, holding a door etc. The team is in charge of putting together mechanical, electrical and coding aspects of the robot to make the best performance at the competition.

The purpose of a greenhouse is to control the growing environment. Plants require a limited range of temperature, soil moisture, light, humidity, air (Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen), and nutrients to grow. Plants also require some type of physical support for roots and shoots.  Plants also depend upon symbiotic relationships with fungi and insects to grow and reproduce. The greenhouse covering helps control many of these factors to help increase plant growth and reproduction.
