Intro to Arduino is a single two hour course to learn all the basics of how to set up, program, and wire up your arduino to anything. The May 30th and June 1st classes are identical, so feel free to choose the day that works for you!
A laptop and Arduino is all you need to interface with the real world.
Arduino comes with libraries to interface with hundreds of different electronic devices and gadgets. You can use it to connect physical things to everything from simple sensors to internet feeds, leave it running standalone or hook up to computers, other arduinos, custom radios, and much more.
What you need to bring:
- a laptop,
- along with a little imagination
- The Arduino development kit installed on your laptop, which you can find here: http://arduino.cc
What you’ll get:
- Arduino Leonardo
- Necessary Electronics components to get you started.
- Blinky LEDs
(These materials alone are a $50 dollar retail value!)
