Event description

Description

Get a hands-on introduction to the Arduino, the hugely popular microprocessor platform used in prototyping and hobby projects. Arduino is open source and inexpensive, so it's a great way to experiment with electronics. In this workshop you'll build several Arduino hardware projects from electronic component kits and write simple programs to control them.

The Arduino has many built-in features that work with sensors and other devices useful for around-the-home applications. We'll look at the software libraries and code that controls the hardware as we add devices such as push buttons, LEDs, an LCD display, and sensors for temperature, light and proximity. Both analog and digital inputs and outputs will be covered. We'll also add a real time clock with battery back-up.

We'll provide links to Arduino boards and kits if you want to get your own.

Led by Lou Voerman. Prof. Voerman is a retired Computer Science professor whose concentration was computer architecture and operating systems. He is an amateur radio operator and an electronics hobbyist with extensive experience in the use of microcomputers in ham radio and many other projects around the house.

Ages 14+

Note: Kramden's Arduino Basics Workshop is back by popular demand! This is a new session of the workshop that Prof. Voerman taught in September 2017 and January 2018.
