6 Vivian St, Wellington
Have you heard the latest blurb and technobabble like 'Arduino, Raspberry Pi, open-source and breakout shield" around the cooler at work?
Are you thinking, "that sounds cool if only I knew what it meant"? or "hmmm I wish I could control my super new garden watering-hose-robot thing, but just don't know how"?
****Well**** we at the Wellington Makerspace have a super hero to the rescue! Tiago Rorke of Diatom Studio has offered to show us all how, what and why we might want to!
Introductory workshop for beginners!
No coding or electronics know-how required -just sit back and relax...absorb and play!
Bring your own laptop or use one of ours!
It is $40 ($32 USD) to attend the workshop where you will have an Arduino to play with and everything you need to experiment with the examples and components we'll have on show for you.
You can also get your own "Know Arduino" starter kit for an additional $100. This kit gets you everything you need to get started:
Arduino Uno R3, the real deal, no cheap knock-offs
3inch breadboard and jumper wires
Inputs - potentiometer, push buttons, thermistor and photo-resistors
Outputs - red, green, yellow and RGB LEDs
A useful combination of resistors, capacitors, as well as an N-channel MOSFET and diode for controlling bigger stuff...
We have a limited number of kits available so please reserve one by contacting [masked]. If we run out there will be a 2 week lead time for the next kits.
To confirm your place for the workshop, please RSVP and pay via Paypal ($32 USD).
The Know Arduino Kits are currently available by cash payment only.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
