Class – Introduction to Arduino

Image of lighted diodes and connector wires on an electronics breadboard.

This class is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren’t entirely sure about how the basics work. You’ll put together basic single component electrical circuits, learn about analog and digital, input and output, basic programming concepts, practice very basic Serial communication, and briefly cover basic virtual prototyping.

Class taught by Joe Moore

Six hour class – 9 am – 4 pm, Saturday, February 27th, 2016.
Minimum enrollment to run class: 8
Maximum enrollment: 16

Students must be at least 13 to take this class.

Enrollment deadline: Sunday, February 21th. 

$10 off if you sign up before Wednesday February 10th!

Concepts covered will include:

  • Using a breadboard
  • Ohm’s Law
  • Digital and Analog
  • Input and Output
  • Arduino programming environment basics
  • Serial Monitor usage with text, variables and pin states
  • Creating schematics and PCBs using the educational prototyping tool Fritzing

Students will finish with a good understanding of how to use the Arduino circuit board as a control for their own projects, and a list of next steps to take to develop them.
