Arduino Workshop

June 23, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

This workshop 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. It’s easier than you think!

We will 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.

In case you haven’t noticed, the key word here is “basic.”

Students will create three simple circuits highlighting analog and digital forms of input and output. Get started with the Arduino programming environment; briefly discuss programming and virtual prototyping.

Concepts that will be covered 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

Price includes the DFRobot Beginner Kit for Arduino. Lowell Makes members are entitled to a 20% discount after materials.

Instructor: Sajin George is a maker and a friend of Lowell Makes from day one.
