DESCRIPTION

Arduino Prototyping For Beginners

Max enrollment: 6 people.

This class is $15 for General Public and FREE to MakeHaven Members.

If you're brand-new to Arduino and electronics, this class will get you started prototyping your first circuit. We will use an Arduino UNO to make LEDs flash in fancy patterns at the push of a button.

We will cover:

  • The Arduino board and how not to fry one;

  • Simple LED circuits, including what is a resistor and how do you know which one to use;

  • How to plug things into a solderless breadboard;

  • How to read someone else's code and modify it to do what you want;

  • Sending code to the Arduino board;

  • Schematic drawing - electronics shorthand so you can remember what you made.

Each student should bring a laptop with the Arduino IDE running on it. Download from https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

We have a limited number of Arduino UNOs and breadboards available for use during the class. Feel free to bring your own. You'll want at least a half-size breadboard (3x2 inches). If you want to purchase ahead of time, here is a good starter kit:https://www.adafruit.com/products/193
