Event Details


In this class, students of all levels will learn how to program and use an Arduino, an easy-to-learn open source microcontroller board that takes all sorts of sensor inputs, follows user-generated programs, and outputs data and power to the world. Arduinos are commonly used in robotics, mechatronics, and all manners of electronics projects around the world, and are supported by a huge community of people. This class will provide what you need to get started!

Class Goals:

In this class, students will learn how to create, test and upload programs to the Arduino from their own computers; they will also learn the basics of attaching input and output devices to the board, such as buttons, knobs, sensors, lights, and motors. New programming concepts are introduced with new electronics components, so those familiar with one or the other will have something to learn. By the end, the students will have a broad understanding of some of the Arduino's capabilities, and enough knowledge to start developing their own projects.




There is a $10 materials fee, which covers a solderless breadboard, a set of jumper wires, and various electronic components. Students may buy Arduino Uno boards and supplementary cabling from the instructor for $25 or bring their own. The class has access to the Artisan's Asylum computer lab, but it is recommended that students bring their own laptop (Mac, Windows, or Linux with at least one USB port).
