Arduino gives artist and engineers the ability to have your projects interact and respond to the real world. This includes everything from obstacle avoidance for robots to sound reactive lighting for art displays or parades. The class to be hosted on December 6th will be a reboot of Hans' Arduino Introduction series.

Part I is meant for those with no background in electricity or microcontrollers. We will cover basic concepts shared from the point of view of someone who is not an electrical engineer.

Thanks to a loan from the University of Arizona's Women's Hackathon, we now have Arduino Unos in stock in order to help us with some hands-on experiments. In part 1, we'll just play with the blink sketch for controlling an LED from an Arduino.

If you have a laptop, please consider bringing it to the class with the Arduino software pre-installed. The software is free and available through this link: .

If you don't have a laptop, Xerocraft may be able to accomodate.

For those of you who want a head start, the class will mirror what's currently hosted on this channel:

Dave has proposed setting up a montly Arduino meeting which can host this series intermittently. As such, I've set up the schedule to repeat monthly on the first Thursday of each month, and should be able to attend to help with your projects between scheduled classes. See you soon!
