What could be better than spending time learning about Arduino, the favorite open source hardware hacking platform for designers, artists and hobbyists?
Join Technology Will Save Us for a 1 day intensive weekend workshop to get you started. This is an introductory level course for beginners, aimed at anyone and everyone who wants to learn the basics of Ardunio, simple electronics and how to build interactive projects.
Over the day we will cover:
Basic electronic components and theory
Introduction to the Arduino programming environment
Introduction to the Arduino platform
How to use digital inputs (switches) and outputs (lights and motors)
How to use analog inputs (sensors) and outputs (light brightness & motor speed)
How to wire up and use sensors with your ideas
How to make lights (LEDs) turn on and off, fade up and down, and generally blink at your command
How to make motors spin
... and then its up to you to take it to the next level and start building your own projects!
There are two types of tickets:
Workshop + full Ardunio kit: which gets you your own Arduino board and kit, complete with LEDs, sensors, motors, electronic components and more to take home.
Workshop only: No kit will be supplied. You're welcome to bring your own kit and selection of components. Or if you need to borrow something, let us know and we will arrange to have Arduino's and components to loan to you.
What do I need to bring?
Yourself and your laptop!
