Hackerspace S2W4 - Arduino Workshop #2
15 August, 2016
UNSW Tyree Energy Technology LG03
Our hackerspaces are a social and experimental space full of makers with all levels of experience where ideas can be discussed, things can be experimented with and collaborative projects can be born - such as our Droid Racing Competition team which took first place!
This week we will be holding the second Arduino Workshop at the Michael Hintze Theatre in LG03, Tyree Building starting at 5:30pm. We'll be covering ways to discover, source and learn how to use electronics parts, as well as go through connecting and coding for inputs into your Arduino projects. Come and join us, enjoy pizza and drinks and maybe learn something new!
For those who's missed out on Arduino Workshop #1, the slides can be accessed here: http://goo.gl/ooYZS6
Arduinos are cheap, mini computer boards that can control any electronics, from lighting displays to self-driving robots! CREATE's Arduino workshop teaches how to connect and program them with various sensors and devices so that you can make the projects you've dreamed about. We've designed the course to be a really easy gateway into DIY coding and circuits from absolute scratch.
But wait, there's more! In later weeks, we will be holding an Introduction to Electronics Design workshop; followed by tutorials for application of OpenCV [Computer Vision] and 2D/3D CAD [Computer Aided Design].
So, if you'd like to jumpstart your skills as a maker, or have a project you'd like help with, or just want to chill with some cool people and FREE FOOD, see you at the Hackerspace !
-- Kits --
This week CREATE will have the Arduino kits available for purchase at the workshop for $20.00 (cash only please).
See http://www.createunsw.com.au/store/sales/ArduinoKit for more information about the kit.
-- What else to bring --
You will need to bring in your own laptop, with the Arduino software installed. It's free, small and the main tool we'll be using for the workshop:
- Arduino IDE Install

- Some libraries to operate parts that come with the kits
