Arduino - Hands-on : Beginner intro to Micro controllers
• Great intro to Arduino • Shows some of the capabilities of the Arduino • Self paced, ask questions as you play ! • Continue where you left off last Class Please pre-pay for the class. Unfortunately classes may be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not reached. This is a fully hands on class. Just connect your Arduino and we will walk through example code together. This class will focus on getting you up and running with Arduino quickly, so that you can begin to explore the world of Arduino on your own. This class will be run using the Basic Kit by Sain Smart which can be purchased for $35.00, so you can continue to work on projects at home. See below for details. We can also provide you with a Sparkfun’s Inventor Kit which will be available for use during the session. Examples & PDF can be found here: Zip file with PDF instructions & Example code with Data sheets ( We will be walking through the following example codes Circuit Examples: Circuit 1: Blinking an LED Circuit 2: Reading a Potentiometer Circuit 3: Driving and RGB LED Circuit 4: Driving Multiple LEDs Circuit 5: Push Buttons Circuit 6: Reading a Photo Resistor Circuit 7: Reading a Temperature Sensor Circuit 8: Driving a Servo Motor Circuit 9: Using a Flex Sensor Circuit 10: Reading a Soft Potentiometer Circuit 11: Using a Buzzer Circuit 12: Driving a Motor Circuit 13: Using Relays Circuit 14: Using a Shift Register Circuit 15: Using an LCD Circuit 16: Simon Says Before the Workshop Please bring your laptop. Arduino runs on Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. Download the (free) Arduino software prior to the workshop from , and install as much as you can.
