Event description

Description

This class will use a circular electronic device called the Circuit Playground Express to introduce and demonstrate the concepts of programing to those young and old. We will be using the Python programing language to manipulate leds, buzzers, and sensors that are mounted on the Circuit Playground

Each ticket for this class can cover two learners, you're encouraged to bring a friend, a teenaged daughter or son, or someone that you are mentoring. A good portion of this class is a guided activity challenge. The idea is to have some fun and learn something new. Prerequisites are good reading comprehension, copying and pasting text. Proficient typing skills would be a plus, but the class is designed around modifying examples. For a demonstration of who the Circuit Playground is geared towards, checkout this video! https://youtu.be/ispBUfad8T4

This particular intro class will focus on programing for button inputs. We will run a series of five classes reviewing the same basic programing concepts in different context. Other classes will cover multicolored lights, sounds, sensors, and machine communication. Our basic example for this class covers how to manipulate a light with a button. Utilizing different button actions among multiple buttons to achieve various results. Learners will be encouraged to modify an example to solve class challenges. There will be a talk covering basic programing concepts that are used in the example followed by hands on time with the teacher in solving the class challenges

The makerspace provides devices to be used at the space. To take home a device one can be purchased from us at the class for $26 or from Adafruit directly https://www.adafruit.com/product/3333
