Event Details

Introducing Arduino & Physical Computing
23 November 2013
10am - 5:30pm 

For functionality, for art, or just for making life more interesting, you'll learn: to configure and program the Arduino, to prototype circuits, to interact with sensors and other common components, and to communicate with Processing software running on your computer. After completing the course, you'll understand not just the limitless creative possibilities of the Arduino, but how to integrate them into larger projects. The course includes your first Arduino Uno, as well as all necessary cables and a stash of buttons, sensors and LEDS to get you hacking the real world.

You will receive an Arduino Uno, breadboard, holder, USB cable and parts bundle. Each parts bundle contains jumper wires, two pushbuttons, two potentiometers, resistors, 10 LEDs, and a photoresistor.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to connect and configure Arduino Uno devices to a computer, and download programmes to it
  • How to use a breadboard to prototype circuits, and interact with components through software
  • What different kinds of components exist and how to use them
  • How to communicate with an Arduino using USB and Processing
  • How to expand your Arduino and where to find devices and support

Your tutor: Asa Calow

Asa Calow is a freelance technologist and co-founder of MadLab. He has been working with (and teaching) Arduino since the very beginning, with commissions including a wearable lie detector, an Oyster Card operated tarot machine, and more interactive light sculptures than you can shake a stick at.
