Event Details

Want to get started with physical computing?

Learn to program an Arduino and interact with the physical world! In this class, we’ll cover an introduction to Arduino and learn how to manipulate outputs based on sensor inputs.

Topics covered

  • What is Arduino?

  • Software setup (IDE, how to program it, the Serial monitor)

  • Reading schematics and Fritzing (wiring) diagrams

  • Basics of breadboarding

  • Blinking an LED

  • Reading sensor input (with a light sensor)

  • Controlling output (with a simple motor)

  • Combining input and output, making the motor move in response to light


All students will receive a basic electronics starter kit, which contains a starter pack of electronics components and sensors, including a breadboard, wires, light sensor, tilt sensor, LEDs, a motor, and more. Students will also receive an Arduino UNO.

Students should bring their own laptop and install some free software ahead of time:

Who should take this class?

Basic programming experience (familiarity with variables and loops) is assumed. No previous experience with hardware, circuits, or electrical engineering is expected.

OK, awesome, I want to join!

Please be ready to start at 1pm!  We find that you will need this time to get through the whole class. Our classes tend to sell out about a week in advance so if you're interested, you may want to sign up early.


This class will be taught by NYC Resistor members Miria Grunick and Mikael Vejdemo-Johansson.  As with all NYC Resistor events, this class is 18+ and governed by our Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct, as well as accessibility information, can be found at

Please note that refunds must be requested 72 hours in advance. If you have any questions, please email
