Ylab Arduino Hands-On Course
(18 years + event)
If you missed our Arduino 1 class:
- We've posted class notes and code samples here
- Work through each of the code examples. When you can get the code of section 3.3 running, you are good for this Arduino2 class!
There are a whole assortment of sensors and control devices built for Arduino - and we have a whole bunch of them for you to try out!
We have devices made specifically for connecting to Arduino shields, and other cheaper devices that you can hook up on your own.
We'll cover the fundamentals of things like:
- 3 volt vs 5 volt devices - when to use which one, and how to mix the two
- Why do plans sometimes tell you to use a 100 ohm resistor, and sometimes a 10,000 ohm resistor
- Why pull-up/pull-down resistors are required for some inputs... and why you may not need them.
- Power for control vs power for driving a device
- How you can safely control 120V household devices with your little Arduino board
You need to bring:
- Your own laptop, pre-loaded with the Arduino IDE software SCROLL DOWN ON THE LINKED PAGE TO LOAD ARDUINO IDE[masked], NOT THE 2.whatever version. Version 2 is still flaky!
- USB cable to connect the Arduino to the laptop
- Arduino Uno board
If you do not have an Arduino board, we can provide one for $30 with the cable. Tax included.
NOTE: If you are visually impaired, we can provide a 19" monitor to attach to your laptop for the session. No charge.
This session will be the foundation for a series of more advanced Arduino sessions.
