What is Arduino?
If you're interested in interacting with the physical world through code, this is the workshop for you!
Arduino boards are fantastic for beginners and experienced makers alike. Plug the credit card sized board into your PC via USB, upload your code and away you go! Using a simplified version of C++ programming language you can turn motors, light up LEDS, read sensors and even automate your entire house. Arduino is such an accessible and low cost format the only limit is your imagination.
What will I learn?
Reading and writing C++ programming language
Coding fundamentals and possibilites
Develop creativity, logic and critical thinking
Discover exciting real world application of mathematics
Understanding of electrical circuits
Learn how to program lasers, radio waves, sonar, infrared, motors, light & sound sensors, LEDS, RFID, gyros, robot arms and more!
Gain the knowledge to kick-start your own projects at home
First we get hands on with some Arduino gadgets to see the possible applications of the board. The group then discuss their own creative ideas for inventions they would find useful. We then break into smaller groups and the participants experiment with making their ideas a reality. By the end of the workshop everyone will have contributed to creating their own digital project and will have gained the confidence to work independently on their next project. Online tutorials and sample code will be provided after the workshop to guide in participants in their future studies.
Gain the skills and confidence to lead your own Arduino workshops.
We offer tuition on a one-to-one basis or for small groups.
Do you have a project or gadet in mind and are looking for someone to design and implement your invention?
