Register Now

Date: September 22, 2014

Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Place: NSCAD Institute for Applied Creativity 1-1061 Marginal Road Halifax Seaport

Cost: $20 suggested donation $10 arduino clone and USB cable (feel free to bring your own) $10 breadboard and jumpers (feel free to bring your own) $5 bag o' bits (participants are also invited to source their own bits, see below)

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.

This workshop series will explore basic electronics and the capabilities of the Arduino platform. Participants will build simple projects using commonly available components, with an eye to experimentation and innovation.

This first session introduces the Arduino platform and the development environment. It also outlines the basic electronics needed to blink light-emitting diodes.

You will need:

  • A laptop with the Arduino software installed
  • An Arduino or compatible clone with USB cable (a clone is available for $10)
  • A breadboard and jumpers (available for $10)
  • An monochrome LED (included in the bag o’ bits)
  • A common cathode RGB LED (included in the bag o’ bits)
  • Four 680Ω resistors (included in the bag o’ bits)
