This is a friendly introductory workshop to the Arduino platform of micro-controllers that will take place on Wednesday at 2 O’ Clock (venue tbc). Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators.
In this three-hour workshop we will:
- Learn how to program it using the Arduino environment
- Wire up several circuits and load up code to read sensors and light LED’s
- Cover variables, functions, basic Arduino functionality
When you leave, we hope you have enough knowledge to go on and start your own fun Arduino projects.
You don’t need an Arduino to attend this event. You do need to bring a laptop along with you
No previous electronics skills are required for this workshop
This workshop is being led by Jeffrey Roe, a final year student in Digital Media Engineering. His website can be found here.Pages:
