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 you will learn how to safely use relays to turn motors on and off and precisely control servo motors to make things move exactly as you want them to.

Both staff and students from the University 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.

It is recommended that you have some prior experience using an Arduino. You should be able to confidently use a solderless breadboard, wire up an LED and upload your code to the development board. If you aren't sure perhaps take our Arduino 01: Getting Started and Arduino 02: Heat, Humidity & Light sessions beforehand.

You will need a working University of Salford computer login. We'll provide Arduino kits to use during the workshop.

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 Eventbrite 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.
