Missed last year's Arduino workshops? Kick off 2014 with a series of introductory and advanced Arduino workshops led by DC Robotics Group Education Director Glenn Mossy. In this introductory session (identical to the 1/28 session),

Glenn will provide an informative lesson Introduction to Arduino in an interactive format for you to gain an understanding of the components, inputs, outputs, programming the Arduino beginning with up projects in the recommended starter kit , Glenn will help get up and running with the software and then get right into putting components on your breadboard and walk everyone through building projects. Bring your laptop to get started with your Arduino Starter kit.

Details and kit ordering instructions to follow. Space is limited so please keep your RSVP status up-to-date. The 1/28 and 1/30 sessions as well as the February Sessions 2/25, 2/27 are identical so please RSVP for one only.

This meetup will center around a build session with a recommended starter kit. If you need a kit you can click on the link in red and order one below. Please place your order for the kit by January 24th and I will be able to bring a kit to the meetup for you. We are adding value to the kit by providing you with a detailed manual on all the projects, and you can get all the help you need. If you have an arduino already, contact us about the add-on kit to get all of the parts for the projects that we will work on. The basic experiments in the kit include and introduction to LED, RGB Led for a spectrum of color control, Pushbuttons, Potentiometer, Temperature Sensing, Servo Control, relays, Motor speed control. You will learn how these can be combined and added onto for more experimentation.

Looking for an advanced workshop? We are in the early stages of planning one for February so stay tuned.

A little info about your excellent instructor: Glenn Mossy has forty years of taking things apart and building new things, with a special interest in all things robotics. In his home hackerspace, Glenn currently is building a number of arduino based shields for robotics and enjoys introducing others to the fun of electronics. Thirty years ago he gave his first presentation on motor-control for robotics at a conference with the International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED). Glenn holds a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Louisiana Tech University(1986).
