This 6 hour course (two 3 hour sessions, two consecutive Wednesdays) is designed as an introduction to microcontrollers. Students will learn how microcontrollers work and build projects that require both software and electronic hardware.
At the end of the class, students will complete the course with the skills and information needed to safely and competently pursue independent microcontrollers projects using the components they use in the class and more!
NOTE: This class is a BYOD (bring your own device), meaning you will need to bring your own laptop as we want you to be able to go home and build more cool stuff with the Arduino kit.
Your instructor is Andrew Wilson and the assistant instructor is Andrew Stroup. There are 8 available seats for this course based on a first come, first serve basis through the Meetup. The course cost will be $200, which includes a pre-class packet (sent out 24 hours prior to the class w/ additional instructions), 6 hours of training, material costs, and a microcontroller builders kit ($150 value) that includes the following components:
Arduino UNO R3
9V power adapter
Breadboard and jumper wires
