We'll introduce you to Awesome Shield (http://www.awesomeshield.com/) and Arduino. You’ll coding basics, and build some fun projects. If you've never coded before, we promise you won't be able to say that any more after this event. :-) And the best thing, we have free tickets for the Meshcon@Makerfaire. Please book it here: https://ticketing.ticketpay.de/DSKYJUHO and use the code: XQTWIY
This workshop is ideal for school aged kids (with parents), teens and parents. Curious folks of all ages are more than welcome to join! We're a social enterprise that believes in empowering people to understand and influence technology. We think learning to code, and build things with electronics is a great way to do this. Our learning platform includes video tutorials, hardware, and software. Awesome Shield is in Beta. This workshop will be a chance to have some fun learning about coding, and get a sneak peak at Awesome Shield while it is still in development.
What to Bring
Please bring a computer, and install the Arduino IDE beforehand. Here is a link to download and install the Arduino IDE (https://www.arduino.cc/en/main/software). This tool will let your write code for Arduino and Awesome Shield. If you have an Arduino that you can bring with you, that’s a bonus. But if not, you can use one of ours.
