Makerspace in Action: A Hands-On Introduction to Arduino Electronic Prototyping Platform - Special Two-Part Session - Part 1 of 2 - Sponsored furniture provided by Herman Miller
In this workshop you will learn: How to install Arduino on your laptop, write simple programs, and download them to the Arduino board * How to build simple electronic circuits and connect them to Arduino * How to gather data from multiple sensors and control multiple output devices (LEDs, speakers, etc.)
IMPORTANT: You must bring a laptop (not a tablet) to participate in this workshop (Arduino is supported on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux). You'll need to download and install the free Arduino 1.5.5 BETA or the latest version of 1.5 prior to the workshop, available either from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software or at the information desk on thumb drives that can be checked out. Note that this workshop spans two sessions and that material covered in the first half will not be repeated in the second.
