Event description

Description

Are you interested in making your own electronic devices, but don't know where to start? Want to make something move? Light up some LEDs? Add a bit of interactivity to an exhibit?

In this hour-long introductory session, we start with the very basics. You will learn how to program an Arduino microcontroller development board, learn some basic electronics, control some LED lights and get well on the way to being a dab hand at Making.

Both staff and students are encouraged to come along and learn something new. The Maker Space will be open for further experimentation afterwards, so you can stick around if you want.

No prior experience is required, but you will need a working University of Salford computer login. We'll provide Arduino kits to use during the workshop.

Confident that you want to learn more? Why not sign up for the second workshop - sensing light, temperature and humidity!

Arduino Workshop Series

The University of Salford's Maker Space is running a series of introductory workshops on the popular Arduino electronics development board, helping you to overcome that first hurdle and get started with making. Over the coming weeks we'll be looking at controlling digital outputs, collecting data from sensors and making things move. Keep an eye on our Event Brite page!


Where is the Maker Space?

We're currently located in Alumni House at the main University of Salford campus, on the southern side of The Crescent behind Joule House. When you arrive, push the labelled buzzer to be let in.
