Learn the basics of electronics, sensors, LEDs and robotics using the popular Arduino microprocessor board. In this four part hands-on course, students will learn to wire up electronic circuits on an Arduino and program it to make them work. We will cover digital & analog circuits, various kinds of sensors, LEDs and and basic motor control. No prior electronics experience is required.
Participants will receive a lab kit containing an Arduino and electronic parts. A Mac, PC or Linux laptop is required (We have Chromebooks available for loan).
Please plan to attend all four workshops.
We will meet on:
- March 19 from 6:30-8:30
- March 21 from 6:30-8:30
- March 26 from 6:30-8:30
- March 28 from 6:30-8:30
