Learn the fun that can be had programming an Arduino microcontroller to do your bidding!
Join the Build Brighton team, as we walk you through the basics of programming, making LEDs flash, buzzers squeak, and how to react to sensors, buttons and the like. All the base you need to start adventuring in the wonderful world of Arduino.
You don't need any previous coding experience, but if you already have some skills in this area we'll make sure there are a few puzzles along the way to keep you entertained.
The Protosnap version of the Arduino gives us an excellent platform to teach you the coding skills you'll need, without needed to break out the soldering iron. When you are ready to start moving on to more detailed electronics projects, all you need to do is snap off the components, solder on some leads, and away you go! Easy to start, easy to advance.
Please note that there are two ticket types: £70 includes a take-home protosnap, £40 is for the workshop only. We have a number of loanable protosnaps available, a £30 cash deposit is required (which of course, can be exchanged for the protosnap at the end of the workshop if you like!)
The workshop lasts approximately 6 hours, including an hour break for lunch. Soft drinks and snacks are also available.
You'll need to bring a laptop with a working USB port, capable of running the Arduino software - Windows XP / 7, Linux, and MacOS are all supported.
When & Where
Build Brighton Makerspace
Build Brighton is a communal workshop and collective of over 100 makers who love to build stuff.
We’re part of a global network of makerspaces – places where people do creative projects, such as electronics, 3D printing, crafts and woodworking. Our main purpose is to provide tools and a space in which our members can gather, collaborate and learn from each other. People beaver away on their own projects, or take part in exciting group projects in a playful and friendly environment.
We are a not-for-profit community run entirely by volunteers. Our members pay a monthly subscription that goes towards paying for the workshop space and equipment for the group.
