Event Details

Spend an evening at the SoMakeIt workshop learning how to build and program a shrimp and then take it home!

Sponsored by Twilio

The assembled shrimp kit.
What is a shrimp?

It's a very minimal do it yourself Arduino, it is simply the Atmel microcontroller and the components needed to make it work. It is functionally the same as the Arduino Uno but costs a lot less, your ticket includes all the parts you need to make the above shrimp plus an FTDI programming dongle, all of which you will take home. We'll also be selling additional shrimps if you want some more.

They were dreampt up by our friends at the Makers of Morecambe makerspace. You can see more at shrimping.it


What's in the workshop?

  • What is a microcontroller? What is Arduino and how shrimp is related?
  • Build and test your Shrimp kit.
  • Install and get to know the Arduino IDE (PC software)...
  • ...Then use it to start programming your shrimp.
  • For the fast learners there are other devices/robots in the makerspace that you can use with your new shrimp.


Do I need to bring anything?

Yes, just a Linux, Mac or Windows laptop.

 

Can I buy additional kits?

Yes, additional kits will be sold at the workshop to anyone who wants one:

  • Full kit £12, components, mini breadboard, ftdi controller (one full kit will be included with the ticket)
  • Components only kit: £6
  • £1 will upgrade your kit's breadboard to a slightly larger one.
