This 4-part workshop is geared toward beginners as well as more accomplished Arduino users. Beginners should start at Workshop 1, where we will get you up to speed on the fundamentals of electricity and electronics, so that you understand the components you’ll be working with, and can feel confident discussing and building your project. By Workshop 2, we’ll move into an overview of the use of microprocessors, and work with the Arduino to program an LED blink sequence. Workshops 3 and 4 will further advance into the intermediate levels of programming and electronics. By workshop 5, you’ll be integrating Processing with Arduino, adding interactivity to create interactive environments through visual or physical sensing and controls. Over the sessions of the course, you will learn all about physical electronics, the inputs and outputs of the Arduino board, going over theories and concepts of electricity and electronics. You will also learn how to code your very own programs using the freely available and open-source software: Arduino, which is similar to C++ and Processing’s IDE. At the end of the course, you will have produced controllers and receptors based on the Arduino microprocessor, in order to accomplish various tasks. [nggallery id=79] About the….
