Arduinos for Beginners
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you interested in joining the maker movement and helping your students learn by making? Are you eager to let your students create, explore and hack technology instead of sitting in front of a screen? Then Arduino for Beginners may be the perfect workshop for you. Arduinos are small microcontrollers that you program to sense the environment (light, temperature, movement) and respond by blinking lights, making noises and moving motors. In this workshop we will learn about circuits with conductive dough called "Squishy Circuits". We will also create some simple Arduino code and circuits with Breadboards to make some LED lights blink. Finally we will experiment with MaKeyMaKey boards. It's not earth shattering, but it's fun and a great first step to the world of Arduinos. No Experience necessary. Join us! https://arduinoed.wordpress.com/
