Event description

Description

From self-adjusting thermostats to pet feeders that calculate and track your pet's nutritional needs, the Internet of Things may sound futuristic, but it is quickly becoming reality. In this workshop, we will explore ways to control basic electronics remotely from a laptop or smartphone. We'll even learn how to make a Weasley Whereabouts Clock!

No experience or expertise in electronics or coding is necessary. Although experience with Arduino would be helpful, it is not required. Some pre-workshop setup instructions will be emailed to registrants prior to the workshop. Please complete the pre-workshop instructions for software and creating accounts. It will make the workshop go more smoothly!
