I am a learner. I love robotics, but I’m still fumbling my way through it, learning as much as I can and doing my best to pass that knowledge on. That’s why it wasn’t really surprising to me when my Motor Controllers for Cheap Robots tutorial on Instructables started getting some comments that pointed out how badly designed my circuit was.

As most of you know, we have our own Forum where anybody can go post questions and projects involving Digilent products: FPGAs, microcontrollers, any of our scopes, National Instruments products like the LabVIEW Home Bundle, Pmods, programming solutions, you name it. With this wide variety of products and an even wider variety of potential questions, the Forum can be a little daunting to navigate. This post will help first-time Digilent Forum users get the best experience out of the Digilent Forum.
Happy Earth Day! The Center for Improved Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) is celebrating Earth Day by promoting their collaborative project that they’ve been working on for the last five years. Instead of simply using the internet for information retrieval as a tool for teaching children about the world around them, the CIESE’s program encourages students to get out into their communities and study their local environments and then share that with the other program participants across the globe. The children involved are excited about the opportunity to do real science like their heroes and to share and learn with the rest of the world.
