Playing with Arduino

  • Event: 2015 CAR Conference
  • Speaker: John Keefe of Quartz
  • Date/Time: Friday, Mar. 6 at 3:20pm
  • Location: M107
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

Learn how to make simple, interactive projects using Arduino hardware. We'll walk through a couple of easy projects to give you a feel for what's possible. Open to anyone who likes to play and make things blink. We'll have a few Arduinos on hand to share, or you can bring your own. (The parts we're using are here and here, and cost about $30 total.) We won't be soldering and no previous coding experience required. Bring a laptop if you can.
