Workshop description: The Arduino is a Do It Yourself revolution in electronics: an inexpensive, easy-to-use development environment that lets even novices learn to program and interface electronic devices to an especially simple computer.  In this session, we will start from the very basics and end up programming Arduinos to make lights blink, read in a temperature sensor, make motors move and other fun projects.  You’ll also get resources to let you get started working with Arduinos on your own.
One session will be oriented toward an audience with no programming or electronics experience, and another to users with some electronics and programming experience.


It would be great if you could join us!
Please let me know if you have any questions.
