Course Description

Have you ever dreamed of building your own remote-control dog treat launcher? A holiday sweater festooned with blinking lights, perhaps? How about your very own pencil-sharpening robot? With Arduino, you can!

In this six-week course, we'll explore project possibilities with the Arduino microprocessor board. The Arduino enables anyone to make interesting electronic projects quickly and easily. The course will cover the basics of simple input and output devices: buttons, knobs, sensors, lights, buzzers, motors, and more. We'll also cover the fundamentals of programming for Arduino, as well as circuit assembly technique. Previous electronic experience is not required.

Materials Needed

Course participants will require a laptop computer. We also have SparkFun Inventor's Kits (a approx. $90 value) available in ticketing which includes an Arduino-compatible prototyping board and all the other necessary supplies for the projects in this course. If you have your own kit, please skip this option in ticketing.


Instructor Bio

Course instructor Jeff Faust is a professional woodworker by day, and has built a variety of Arduino-based projects by night.
