Let’s go back to basics: you attended the Arduino 101 workshop (pre-requisite for this class), got really excited about creating your own projects, but you never had any sort of electronics training before. Fear not! In this 2 hour workshop you will learn (basic level):

• Electricity concepts (voltage, current, and wattage)
• How to use a multimeter to measure components and circuits
• How to identify resistors, capacitor, diodes and LEDs
• How to read simple schematics and use a breadboard to create the circuit
• Adding a distance sensor to the Arduino
• Adding a motor driver to the Arduino

Please bring your laptop: you won’t be able to attend this class without it... We’ll have kits for use during the class.

Pre-requisites:  Arduino 101 workshop (Arduino IDE installation and usage, loading sketches to board, serial monitoring and basic coding) or equivalent knowledge.

Attention: If you don’t feel comfortable in dealing with electricity and/or feel it is dangerous, please skip this workshop. Even tough we’ll be dealing only with low voltages there is always a risk of a minor shock.

Max class size of 4. Non-Members: $60 Members: $40
