This is a 4-hour hands-on introduction to the Arduino micro-controller and beginning electronics and electronic components. This is an expanded version of our original Intro to Arduino class but with a more streamlined approach (we've done this class for over 200 people now!) and a deeper focus on electronics as well as Arduino.
You will learn:
Arduino Microcontroller basics
The waterfall model of electricity
Units of electrical measurement and Ohms Law
Interfacing digital inputs and output
Interfacing analog inputs
Writing clear and concise C code
Creating custom functions for more powerful code
Working with electronic components such as resistors, LEDs, potentiometers, light dependent resistors, and more.
You will need:
A Windows, Mac, or Linux Laptop
The free Arduino software (see below)
An Arduino starter kit (see link below for kits to purchase)
A Class fee of $40 is due at the time you RSVP and helps support the L.A. Robotics Club. The class fee does NOT include an Arduino starter kit (see below.) If you've taken one of our Arduino classes before this one is new and improved and you will learn new useful skills. If you're a complete beginner this class is still appropriate as no previous experience is necessary.
Come support the L.A. Robotics Club and Learn Arduino & Electronics!
