Workshops

Fa22 workshops will open for registration soon! Learn all that you need to know to get off the ground with brain computer interfacing!

These workshops, offered by NATnl, will all be 100% virtual.



If you want to learn about the stuff we do in a fun, interactive, low-stress environment, this is the event for you! We currently offer four unique 10-session workshop streams that serve as an introduction to each of the key pilars of brain computer interfacing programs.

We encourage you to take multiple workshops if you are interested, neurotech and brain computer interfacing is fundamentally interdisciplanry and building a breadth of knowledge is indespensible!

Software

This workshop will take you all the way from the fundammentals of Python to equipping you with all the basic skills necessary to interact with your brain computer interface. No previous experience required. This workshop contains an asynchronous setup "Day 0" workshop to get your system all set up for the series!

Workshop Full!

Hardware

Learn to build your own BCI hardware, from the comfort of your own home. This workshop will teach participants critical Circuit Design skills and how to apply them in creating an EEG device. Enrollment fee includes the cost of basic circuit components, a printed circuit board, an arduino nano, and shipping expenses. Limited to those currently residing in Canada. No previous experience required.

This Workshop Will be Offered Next Semester!

Presenting in:  Software
Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm NeurAlbertaTech's token Engineering student! Over the past few years I have had the amazing opportunity to help run events, workshops and coding competitions all aimed at introducing beginners to the world of computer programming. I absolutely love to teach people about coding, and I cannot wait to begin presenting workshops as a part of NAT's Presenter Team!

Cameron Hildebrandt

natNL Director of Technology, natUA President

Presenting in:  Software
Hey, I'm Cameron and I'm in my fourth year of a computing science degree at the UofA! I usually focus on helping with anything that has to do with programming, but I'll help out with anything that needs getting done. I'm looking forward to our new new workshop series and I'm really looking forward to meeting you all!
