Come join us at The North Branch Library to learn about the Arduino. In this class we will be covering the following:
LCD TFT Screens (http://bit.ly/2gC6O3S) (15:40) In this lecture you learn how to add a TFT LCD screen to your Arduino project in order to produce colourful text and shapes. The lecture contains two demos in which you learn one of the common TFT LCD shields. In the first one, you learn how to use the screen itself, while in the second how to use the 5-button joystick that is integrated into the screen shield. Parts Needed:
Arduino UNO (http://amzn.to/2guHM9Z) LCD TFT Shield (http://amzn.to/2h2shnv) ** Presentations are shorter this week as we will be spending more time exploring the code on our own.
