Hands on Arduino Workshop for Beginners


The main goal of the workshop is introduce participants to electronic devices and basic circuit theory.

The Arduino is an affordable, flexible, open source microcontroller platform using a simplified C programming language and it is designed to make it easy for hobbyists to create homemade projects. Participants are expected to bring a PC and in order to save some time they are also encouraged to download the Arduino software ahead of time. Step by step instruction can be found at the website. https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Things to Bring: A laptop computer with a USB port.

Background Required: Basic algebra for solving simple equations.

Intended Audience:  Anybody who is interested in electronics is welcomed.
