The Arduino lets us add intelligence to everyday objects or create new, never-imagined smart-artefacts. It gives us power by applying small computer programs to respond to people and our environment. This workshop is intended for people who are computer literate, but who have never programmed before. The first part will give hands-on experience of programming and building simple electronics; covering concepts of digital input and output, analogue input and pseudo-analogue output. We’ll build several ‘mini-projects’ (including building a DIY LED torch, buzzing and humming cheesy tunes and using light- and touch-responsive sensors) which let you get familiar with electronics and programming in digestible pieces. By the end of the workshop you’ll have experienced core concepts of microcontrollers and electronics. You will have programmed and built electronics that are the basis of many artefacts – from works of kinetic art to many of the every-day things around you.
