On the 15th March 2014, at 9.00am, ajks came for the preparation of the workshop and started to distribute all the electronic components to all the involved table. After that, the registration was opening to take the attendance of participant at around 9.30am. At the same time, all the tutors started to help participants install the Processing software into their personal computer. There is only 1 participant absent during the day and a total of 29 participants who had registered earlier for the workshop attended. The workshop was held at Microcomputer Laboratory. The workshop started around 10.00am with a briefing about Processing given by Chuah Hee Jihn (second year EE student) and Choong Jing Pei (first year EE student). After the briefing finished, there had a photo shooting for the participants and ajks. At 10.30am, all participants were started to do Processing tutorials. They were given about 2 hours to done all the tutorials given. We have one hour lunch time break at 12.30pm. At 1.30pm, all the Malay participants were going to pray while the remaining of the participants were continued the workshop with tasks given. The task given now related to the Processing Arduino’s tutorials. Tutors were guided participants who faced problems. The workshop was ended at 4.00pm. All committees were cleaned up the laboratory before leave.

On the 1st March 2014, a total of 30 participants who had registered earlier for the workshop attended. The workshop was held at Microcomputer Laboratory. Around 10.00am, the registration was open to take the attendance for participant. The workshop started around 10.30am with a briefing about Arduino given by Ng Ken Hoe (second year EE student) and Chan Hoe Jie (first year EE student). At 10.45am, all participants were started to do Arduino’s tutorials. They were given about 2 hours to done all the tutorials given. We have one hour lunch time break at 12.30pm. The participants were continued the workshop with tasks given at 1.30pm. Tutors were guided participants who faced problems. The workshop was ended at 5.00pm. All committees were cleaned up the laboratory before leave. The advantages from this event is that our USM student gained knowledge about Arduino, and through the workshop the participant were given chance to learn how to program arduino. Besides they also can program arduino by themselves.

USM SEE has successfully organized Do-It-Yourself Printed Circuit Board Workshop. The purpose of the workshop is to teach Do-It-Yourself PCB fabrication techniques to students as well as using PCB layout software called Eagle Cadsoft. This workshop aims to show the complete process to fabricate a PCB from the design stage all the way to fabrication stage. The workshop was fully sponsored by USM SEE, Vanguard Electronic and Makeweekend. A total of 40 students were involved as the participants of the workshop.
Mr. Calvin Chen was the Project Manager of the workshop. The organizing committee started preparing for the workshop at 8am and the workshop was officially launched at 9am at Microcomputer Laboratory. The workshop began with a short welcoming speech by Mr. Calvin Chen. The briefing on the Eagle CadSoft started shortly after the welcoming speech. Since the participating students had no prior knowledge and exposure to Eagle CadSoft, Mr. Calvin Chen delivered a detailed talk on how to draw schematic diagram and how to do the layout of the schematic diagram.
The participants had the opportunity to try themselves in constructing simple Light Dependant Resistor Circuit. The participants were guided by tutors throughout the session. The workshop finished up with the group photograph session.
