Pete Prodoehl of Milwaukee Maker Space will discuss Arduinos, a versatile and critical component of many things. An Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. Join us for Pete's presentation and network with fellow inventors!
