Event Details

Arduino

Description:

This class is an introduction to physical computing with the Arduino. Physical computing is a name for using a computer system (in this case, the Arduino microcontroller) to sense, react to, and effect the physical world. Students will learn the basic electronics and programming skills required to have an Arduino turn lights on and off, sense the world in a variety of ways, and move different kinds of motors automatically.

Class Goals:

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • Write programs for the Arduino
  • Make lights blink, glow, pulse and flash
  • Interact with your projects through a variety of sensors: buttons, knobs, light, distance, magnetics, temperature, and more!
  • Move things in the real world with motors and servos
  • Get your electronics talking to computers

Prerequisites:

None.

Materials:

Complete take-home kits are provided by the instructor, cost included in the registration fee.This fee covers the following materials:

  • USB Cable
  • Breadboard
  • Wire kit
  • Resistor/capacitor kit
  • Transistors/relays
  • Outputs: buzzer, knobs, pots, LEDs, servo, motor, display
  • Sensors: ultrasound, pot/knob, temperature, magnetic, touch
  • Battery pack
The "Arduino included" tickets also includ the Arduino Uno itself. Students should feel free to provide their own Arduinos and register for a "Arduino not included" ticket.
 

It is preferred to bring a Windows or Mac computer, but computers will be available for any students who need.
