Event description

Description


** Please note: this workshop is designed to follow our Programming with Arduino, basic workshop. It is not designed to be a participants first exposure to Arduino. If you have not attended our basic workshop but do have other experience with Arduinos you are welcome to attend.**

Workshop Summary:

Ready for round two? This advanced workshop will focus on controlling pretty much anything electrical with an Arduino. Participants will engage on hands-on practical activities that will include some of the more advanced shields and break out boards that can be added to an Arduino for increased function. The topics of Bluetooth, RFID, and IR control will be discussed and used in a variety of circuits that control both AC and DC products as well as pneumatic actuators. Participants will also design some homemade sensors that can be shared in the classroom with their students. For anyone who does not have a Technology Education/Industrial Arts certification, we will be having an introductory, ONE hour safety lesson at the beginning of the workshop. Sample lessons and activities will be shared with the participants.
