This is an introductory course to the world of robotics with Arduino – an open source platform consisting of a programmable circuit board (microcontroller) used in conjunction with software to write and upload code. In this lesson, participants will explore electronics and graphic-based computer programming to complete an electronics project.
The objective of this course is to provide students with the necessary knowledge and tools to integrate and build simple projects with sensors and outputs on their own.
Day 1: 3 hours
Hands on with Arduino
Understanding the basics of circuits
Time-based functions and serial communication
Digital and analog inputs on Arduino (potentiometers, buttons, joystick module, fotoresistors)
Day 2: 3 hours
Learning about outputs
Passive and active buzzers
Programming different types of motors
LCD Screen module
Making a final project
Member $100 / Non-member $110
*Arduino kits will be provided; however, students can also purchase their own kit ($50 from EcoStudio) to take home and continue learning.
Two-day course; 6 hours total
