The Arduino platform is an amazing way to learn more about electronics or to bring your latest idea to life.
In this "all ages"* beginner’s class, you will learn the basics of the Arduino hardware, and how to install and use the Arduino software. You will build simple circuits that can be controlled with the Arduino and explore “shields” that are available to expand the Arduino. Bring your own Arduino and components, or pre-order an Arduino Starter Kit which includes an Arduino Uno, a USB cable, a solderless breadboard, jumper wires, and an assortment of switches, potentiometers, LEDs and resistors.
Members - FREE (does not include hardware)
Non-Members - $20 (does not include hardware)
Optional Arduino Starter Kit (from adafruit industries) - $45
You are also invited to grab a nearby lunch with the FamiLAB crew, and enjoys a free afternoon Halloween themed electronics hacking workshop from 1(ish)-4(ish)pm...if you are interested, please RSVP for that event HERE.
Please Note: A personal laptop will be required to participate. If you do not purchase the Arduino Starter Kit, you will need to bring Arduino hardware to participate.
Required hardware: Arduino or Arduino-compatible board, USB cable, solderless breadboard, jumper wires. If your Arduino board is not-usb powered, please bring a small power supply.
*Children must be accompanied by an adult who will help faciliate the learning process.
