Intro to Arduino Workshop with Robosoc
18 August, 2016
To kick off the second session of 2016 the UTS Robotics Society and UTS Hatchery have teamed up to present a crash course on all things programming and Arduino!
For those who don’t know, Arduino is a prototyping platform used by makers and developers all over the world to create ‘proof of concept’ and rapid custom solutions. In this coding workshop you will learn how to get started with Arduino, and get up to speed with LEDs, sensors, inputs, motors, servos, actuators and other electronic components! This workshop will help you understand how to start programming and what you can achieve with a simple microcontroller and a few spare hours.
There will also be a number of larger projects on show for you to check out and gain some inspiration for what to do after you have mastered programming.
If you like what you see and would like to extend your skills to include soldering and electronic design we will have some LED cube kits available in your choice of three exquisite colours; red, blue and green!
So come along to learn a new skill or get a quick refresher course before starting your next project or hatchery prototype!
While the workshop is free, spots are limited so please regester your attendance through the eventbrite link above.
**Please note that you will need to bring along or share a laptop with the Arduino software installed.
This software is available for free at www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software .
