This is a series of workshops geared toward beginners with no experience in programming.
We kick off our Arduino series with Arduino 1 for non-programmers. You will leave this class with a solid foundation in programming, learning how to program interactions with the physical environment.
This program unique to summer, and a great way to get a solid foundation of theory and application in a friendly learning environment free from painful lectures. You will leave understanding what you need to know in order to get to the next stage of designing your own personal projects. You will receive personalized attention from multiple class helpers and the instructor along the way.
Arduino 2 and 3 will help you along the way with your project, moving in to more advanced and specific programming, allowing you to add more complex characteristics to your project, adding inputs such as sensors to receive information and outputs such as motors to respond. Examples of projects that participants in the past have made as a result of this course include object-avoiding autonomous vehicles and audio-responsive LED arrays.
Cost: $55 Class + $75 materials kit fee – includes Arduino, cable, wire, batteries, LEDs, and all necessary components.
You can purchase the kit HERE or buy it in person when you arrive.
About the kits for these workshops:
We have had some questions about whether people can buy their own parts. We are asking that you purchase the pre-made kit from us so that everyone has exactly the same materials. We have worked hard to source the best prices, and the only other comparable kits online (such as the Sparkfun Arduino Inventors kit) costs ~$30 more. We are passing the savings directly to you for our many hours of best-deal-finding.
The kit for Arduino workshops 1-3 includes : Arduino Uno SMD, Breadboard, Clear Self-Adhesive, USB Cable A to B – 6 Foot, Relay SPDT Sealed, Buzzer – PC Mount 12mm 2.048kHz, Mini Photocell, Hobby Motor, Trimpot 10K with Knob, Momentary Push Button Switch – 12mm Square, Resistor 10k Ohm 1/6th Watt PTH, 330 Ohm or 560 Ohm resistor, Diode Small Signal – 1N4148, LEDs, Tri-Color LED, Jumper Wire, 9v batteries, Shipping
