Arduino Workshop #1: Art & Design
15 April, 2016
Rm203 D Block, UNSW Art and Design, Paddington Campus
It's time to introduce the our Arduino Workshops to fellow Art & Design Create-rs from week 6 - 7! Don't be afraid if you have no electronics or programming experience -- we've designed the course to be a really easy gateway into DIY coding and circuits from absolute scratch.
Arduinos are cheap, mini computer boards that can control any electronics, from lighting installations to robots. CREATE's Arduino workshop teaches how to connect and code them with various sensors and devices so that you can make the projects you've dreamed about.
Don't be afraid if you have no electronics or programming experience -- we've designed the course to be a really easy gateway into these worlds from absolute scratch.
LOCATION TO BE ANNOUNCED
-- Kits --
This week CREATE will provide the necessary boards and components, and our full arduino kits will be available for preorder.
See http://www.createunsw.com.au/store/sales/ArduinoKit for more information about the kit.
-- What else to bring --
You must bring in your own laptop, with the arduino software installed. It's free, small and the main tool we'll be using every week:
- The current Arduino IDE [https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software]
- The drivers to use the Arduino (should install with the IDE)
- Some libraries to operate parts that come with the kits [https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BzPz9Imh10VIT2s1Y0NfekRpWjQ&usp=sharing]
