Are you interested in home automation, robotics, or the Arduino series of microcontrollers, but don't know where to begin? Bought an Arduino and have never used it due to intimidation or maybe you just don't know what you'd do with it? This is an intro class focusing on basic Electronics, Robotics, using the Arduino controller, and hands-on circuit building and coding.
Arduino is an open-source programmable controller that can sense the environment by receiving inputs from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other devices. It’s perfect for any inventor, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.The Arduino can be the brain for your next robotic, home automation, or sculpture project
Level: Beginner, Noob, "What's a Microcontroller?
Format:Learn At your own pace with hands-on building of circuits and code. Lecture/presentation portion of class will be under 15 minutes, and then you're off on your way building and controlling electronics. Assistance will be provided as needed and will include demonstration and explanation of operation as needed or requested.
