May 31 & June 7, 7:00pm - 9:00pm each night
Ever wanted to make something blink or buzz, but don't know where to start? This is the class that will teach you the basics of what an Arduino can do, and how microcontrollers are awesome!
The class cost includes a parts kit, which will be used in class. Students will need to supply their own Arduino board and laptop.
- The class focuses on the Arduino Uno model, but everything works with the Arduino Mega as well. The Arduino Leonardo is new and I haven't had a chance to play with it, but I expect it'll play nicely.
- Arduino-compatible boards/Arduino clones might cause some issues -- pin layouts may be different, and in some cases they're not 100% code-compatible. If you already have one, feel free to bring it in, but if you're just getting started I recommend buying an official Arduino board.
- If you don't have an Arduino, they're available at most local Radio Shack stores, and also at Micro Center in St. Louis Park. Or you can check the Vend-A-Kit machine at the Hack Factory! (And of course you can mail-order one, but where's the instant gratification in that?)
- If you haven't got a laptop, please get in touch. We can possibly work something out.
