Arduino Classes at the Norwalk Library

We will be holding Arduino meetups every 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month starting May 23 at the Norwalk Library.  These meetings will consist of a half hour of class/lab on using the Arduino board to learn about programmable electronics.  These will be hands on sessions with motors, sensors, blinking led's and much more.  After the labs we will devote the remaining time to working on your own personal or group projects.  Bring in your current robotics projects and you'll find a community of knowledgeable people who are interested in your work and who will help you with your project.

We will be using the Sparkfun Inventor's Kit for the class.  The Norwalk library has ordered ten of these kits.  The kits are available at  https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11227 if you wish to purchase your own.

You will need a laptop with the Arduino IDE installed (it's a free software).  Here is a link to the Guide book that we will be using:  http://dlnmh9ip6v2uc.cloudfront.net/datasheets/Kits/SFE03-0012-SIK.Guide-300dpi-01.pdf

Please read through the first few pages and follow the directions on installing the Arduino software prior to class.

    I thought I saw a description of the SIK projects that the class will be based on but I can't seem to find it any more. Any idea yet what the topics will be for those that might want to read ahead?

      The next class will probably be a combination of examples 7 and 8 from the book.
