Introduction to Arduino – Saturday 3 March

0

IR LED connected to pin3 and 220 ohm resistor to ground

This course will introduce students to the Arduino Single Board Microcontroller which is a powerful platform for creating devices that interfaces with the physical world.
The Arduino can be used in robotics, art installations, 3D printers, and other do-it-yourself electronics projects.
Circuits will be build that utilize sensors and output devices that allow the microcontroller to react to its environment.
Learn electronics, programming, and physical computing concepts by building basic projects.

This course is fully booked, thanks for your support
