Arduino microcontrollers are versatile development boards which can be used 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 learn maker skills in electronics. This workshop will step you though the basics of circuits and coding with Arduino. You’ll learn how to blink an LED, drive an RGB LED, use push buttons, read a photoresistor (light sensor) and drive a servo motor. You’ll need to provide your own laptop/computer with the Arduino IDE pre-installed.
Express your interest in an Arduino & Sensors kit and workshop before the 30th of May.
