Arduino Beginners Workshop Series
brenda — Sun, 09/09/2012 - 4:31pm
A series of three beginner workshops to let you start interacting with the real world from your computer. Learn how to blink lights, measure the temperature, sound, light and movement and switches and dials.
You don't need to have any programming or electronics experience to participate. We will provide all the expertise, support and friendly encouragement you will need to learn something new, and have fun with hardware. We want to have a diverse group of participants and are particularly encouraging women to attend.
We will be providing a whole bunch of fun parts to play with such as sensors and lights, and during the workshop you can use them to make a wide variety of projects.
The course includes your first month's Associate membership at MHV so that you can work at the space during the workshops and at other times it is open during the month (http://www.makehackvoid.com/community/membership).
You do need to bring your own laptop (but please contact us if this isn't possible for you) and you will also need to bring your own Arduino, which is a small device that hooks up to your computer so you can play with loads of new toys. If you don't already have one, you can buy them online or get one from: http://australianrobotics.com.au/products/seeeduino-v30-atmega-328p (particpants can use the discount code mhv123).
If you already have an Arduino clone, please contact us so we can see whether it'll do the job for this workshop
