Workshop Weekend:Arduino April 26th and 27th

Hello Makers,

Workshop Weekend:Arduino is coming up at the end of April. This is a great weekend all of you who are interested in Arduino and what you can do with it. Check out all the information below and if you use the coupon code MAKESF78 you get $50 off :)

See you all there!


Just a reminder that registration for Workshop Weekend: Arduino is now open. Join us on April 26 and 27 as we take you from Arduino rookie to whiz in just two days!

Arduino is an open electronics platform designed for artists, designers, and hobbyists. Here's just a taste of what kind of stuff you can make using one:

  • Arduino Quadcopter: An autonomous flying quadcopter -- get a birds-eye view on the world!
  • The Inebriator: An automated cocktail mixer -- it won't ask you for a tip!
  • Laser Harp: A futuristic musical harp that forgoes strings in favor of lasers!
  • Secret Knock Door Lock: A door lock that opens only when the right knocking pattern is applied!
  • RC Lawn Mower: Why break your back in the heat? This lawn mower is completely autonomous!
  • Tweet-A-Watt: A power consumption meter that tweets your daily electricity consumption.


Workshop Weekend: Arduino is designed to bring you significant experience with Arduino and electronics, comprehensively leading you through all the key steps, and giving you a platform from which to explore further. You don't need to have any experience working with Arduino, electronics, or programming to attend!

Get more information and register here:

Saturday we'll guide you through the Arduino hardware and software. Sunday, you'll work on your own project with our team of expert mentors at hand. Don't worry if you don't have a project yet — we'll get you started with any from our project page! In the process, you'll learn about topics like advanced programming, working with audio, motors and movement, and LCD character displays.

Use the coupon code MAKESF78 for $50 off admission!

And please reach out to us if you have any questions at all!

I hope we'll see you there.

J.D., Rolf, Anca, Malcolm, Lee, Tenaya, Andrew, Gil, and the Arduino Weekend team
