Intro to Arduino | One Day Workshop
Saturday March 3rd 2018
10:00am to 17:00pm
£95 for the day including Elegoo development kit worth £36 (open source version)
Join the maker movement and learn how to prototype your own hardware projects using the Arduino development board. Over the day you’ll learn how to connect and program sensors, motors, and lights while building your own interactive projects.
This is the perfect workshop if you’re interested in the Internet of Things, home automation, interactive art, assistive technology, robotics, product design, or human-computer interaction.
What you’ll be doing over the day:
10:00 Hello and coffee - introducing Arduino
11:00 Connecting LED’s, buttons, and speakers
12:00 C Programming tutorial
13:00 Lunch break and tinkering time
13:30 Connecting sensors and servos (light, motion, sound, temperature)
14:30 Build a project
16:00 Share your work
(Schedule is subject to change)
What is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.
Who should attend?
Anyone with an interest in programming, robotics, or hardware who would like to join the maker movement.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring a laptop with a working USB port and a copy of the Arduino IDE (software) available here: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
