Arduino for Total Newbies (workshop)

Saturday 14:00–17:30 in Hardware Hacking Area

Arduino is an amazingly powerful tool that is very simple to learn to use. It was designed so that artists and non-geeks can start from nothing, and make something cool happen in less than 90 minutes. Yet, it is powerful enough so that uber-geeks can use it for their projects as well. This workshop is easy enough for total newbies to learn all you need to know to get going on an Arduino. Taught by Mitch Altman. Participants will make their own Arduino clone, and set it up on solderless breadboards to make their own TV-B-Gone remote control to turn off TVs in public places -- a fun way to learn Arduino (and electronics) basics. Bring your laptop, if you can. Who: Anyone and everyone can have fun learning Arduino. Ages 10 to 100 Max #: 50 participants -- This workshop will fill up, so please arrive early! -- No need to register -- just show up early and get a kit to take the workshop Cost: £30 for materials -- includes everything you need to make your Arduino TV-B-Gone (and to play and experiment at home)! And you get to bring your Arduino TV-B-Gone home with you. More info:
