What are sensors, and how do they work? What can I do with them? This is an intermediate class focusing on choosing sensors and monitoring an environment or controlling an output device, with hands-on building of circuits and code.
From the thermostat in your house to the motion detecting security lights outside, humidity sensing and distance measurement, sensors are everywhere. Sensors allow your Arduino to "see" the world around it, and allow you to control, modify, or log those conditions.
Level: Novice to Intermediate
Format:Freestyle and Learn at your own pace with hands-on building of circuits and code. A variety of sensors will be available with clear and concise directions on integration and code to get them up and running. We will have various output devices on hand to control with sensors (motors, LEDs, speakers/buzzers, etc.), or you can bring in your own.
What to Bring:
Class and Lab Fees:
-Cost for Non Members:$50 (you bring own Arduino) or $85 (we provide the Arduino)
-Cost Current Members: $40 (you bring own Arduino) or $75 (we provide the Arduino)
-Add a guest for $45
