Creative Tech Week has ended
Back To Schedule
Monday, May 2 • 3:45pm - 5:00pm
Arduino 101 Workshop

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is free and open to everyone!

Creativity is innate, technology is learnt. It is helpful to have guidance getting started with electronics using Arduino, a platform for making interactive electronics projects. With literacy of Arduino, it enables one to use sensors, motors, LED's and a range of devices to create. We will be giving a hands-on introduction where you will be able to power-on for the first time your own electronics projects.

In this 90-minute workshop, we will talk about the considerations involved in creating an electronics project, how basic prototyping can be done with Arduino, how one can create a case for the device through digital fabrication, and advice for more advanced projects.

This is also the launch event of City Tech Meetup, an open group to support getting started with software and hardware projects. We will be introducing our future offerings of other getting started workshops, such as 3D modeling for 3D printing and our mentoring on individual projects. We can provide expertise of resources, local and remote, to help make your idea come to fruition.

Please be sure to bring a laptop with you, preferably a pc.

You can take the electronics kit that you worked on in class for $20.
