An Arduino (https://www.arduino.cc/) is a type of small computer known as a micro-controller. You can use one to control switches, LEDs, motors and almost anything else you can think of. Materials will be provided but you may want to bring your own laptop. If you would like your own Arduino to keep and take away then a starter kit can be pre-ordered here (http://interactdigitalarts.uk/shop) for £20. 10 places. FREE.
