    The event will run at this Zoom link. To sign up for a time slot, please RSVP here. There's more information about the event at bit.ly/oaplaytest, but here's the gist of it:

    When you show up, we'll set you up in a breakout room with an OA member who will be running your playtest. It'll only take about 15 minutes.

    After you RSVP, we'll let you know what time you should come. Let us know if your plans change and you can't make it.

    If you can't make this event, keep checking your email; we'll have our third (and final) Open Playtest Event at the end of the semester.

  • USC Makers Fall 2020 Showcase

    Mon, Nov 16, 2020 @ 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

    Computer Science

    Student Activity


    We are Makers at USC (http://viterbimakers.usc.edu/) - an electronics hobbyist club started in Fall 2016 by three engineering students as an effort to promote more innovation and interest in electronics on campus. Our mission is to facilitate the exploration of concepts in electronics design and stimulate interest in fields of electronics such as the Internet of Things, Embedded Systems, and Robotics. Our organization hopes to serve as a resource for the USC community by offering assistance with electronics-related projects and hosting workshops that are open to the general public.

    Our members (mainly EE/CS/MechE majors) work in teams to create projects, and this month, we're excited to show off the progress we have made on our creations! This semester has been very unconventional, to say the least, but we are proud to announce that we were still able to create physical hardware projects virtually. Please join us for our fall showcase to see what we have made thus far and celebrate the end of the semester!

    When: November 16th, 8 pm to 10 pm PST

    Where: https://usc.zoom.us/j/91703823421

    SCAD 3D Printable Objects Workshop - Tuesday 11/24 10 AM
    Wrap up your fall semester with the most exciting SCAD workshop! If you have any interest in 3D printing this workshop is for you! You will learn how to code and generate 3D-printable objects that you can even put up for sale. We'll use two software programs: OpenSCAD (or the browser-based equivalent, OpenJSCAD) and ShapeJS (also browser-based). You'll have tons of fun in this workshop as you create simple shapes, use different viewers to look at your creations, and learn to upload them to Shapeways, an online 3D marketplace. No prior experience is necessary. Hope to see you there!
