Course Description

Have you ever dreamed of building your own remote-control dog treat launcher? A holiday sweater festooned with blinking lights, perhaps? How about your very own pencil-sharpening robot? With Arduino, you can!

In this six-week course, we'll explore project possibilities with the Arduino microprocessor board. The Arduino enables anyone to make interesting electronic projects quickly and easily. The course will cover the basics of simple input and output devices: buttons, knobs, sensors, lights, buzzers, motors, and more. We'll also cover the fundamentals of programming for Arduino, as well as circuit assembly technique. Previous electronic experience is not required.

Materials Needed

Course participants will require a laptop computer. We also have SparkFun Inventor's Kits (a approx. $90 value) available in ticketing which includes an Arduino-compatible prototyping board and all the other necessary supplies for the projects in this course. If you have your own kit, please skip this option in ticketing.

 

Instructor Bio

Course instructor Jeff Faust is a professional woodworker by day, and has built a variety of Arduino-based projects by night.

Organizer

Rochester Makerspace

The Rochester Makerspace is a nonprofit community workshop and art studio located near downtown at 850 St. Paul Street. We're here to encourage learning, creativity and collaboration by providing low-cost and free access to sophisticated tools, offering a wide variety of classes, and by providing opportunities for “makers,” artists and craftspersons of all kinds to meet and interact with each other.

In addition to the classes and events listed on this page we also invite to attend the following activities, which do not require registration or a ticket:


 Every Thursday Night from 6 to 9:30 PM - Weekly Community Night & Open House.

You are invited to come and use the Rochester Makerspace for free. Bring something to make or work on, help with a group project, or just come to meet other "makers" and see what we have to offer. (Sorry, but nonmembers can not use our wood or machine shops because of insurance issues.)


 Every Thursday Night from 6:30 until 9:00 PM - Rochester Stained Glass Meetup

Learn how to work with stained glass or bring a project to work on if you already know how. We have lots of tools and grinders and enough supplies to teach you the basics. We also usually have an instructor. Free.


 Every Thursday Night from 7 until 9:30 PM - Microcontrollers & Robotics Meetup

Work on your Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone projects with other users of these small inexpensive computers. All skills level are welcome and you don't need to be a member. We'll help you by sharing our knowledge and experience.


A family membership currently costs $40 per month and it gives you access to these tools and other tools every day from 8 AM to 10 PM.
