Wearable Technology Basics – Maker Kits Project Workshop Two

01 - 20 JUL
12.00 AM - 5.00 PM
Toowoomba, Springfield, Ipswich, Online
20 Jul

Learn key maker skills in electronics, microcontrollers and coding.

Workshop Two

In August 2018 Wearable Technology Basics will teach you the basics of circuits and coding with Lilypad Arduino. Arduino microcontrollers are versatile development boards you can use to make your own inventions that pair sensors with LEDs, motors and more. You’ll receive a free kit in the mail, a guided workshop to learn how to use it and develop maker skills in electronics. You’ll learn how to blink an LED and drive an RGB LED with conductive thread to integrate your circuits into wearables. For this workshop, you’ll need to provide your own laptop/computer with the Arduino IDE pre-installed.

Express your interest in a wearable technology kit and workshop before the 20th of July.

There are 120 free maker kits available, so register your interest early to avoid missing out. 

The four different types of kits are:

  • Arduino & Sensors
  • Wearable Technology
  • Obstacle Avoiding Robots
  • LED Matrix Kits.
  • The Maker Kits Project is for USQ students who reside in Australia, studying on campus or externally
  • Limited places available
  • Distributed on a first in, first served basis
  • Only one kit type per student  

This project is funded by a Student Amenity Fee grant.
