Introduction to Arduino with Ryan Finnigan
Ever heard of Arduino? Its a micro controller that can do anything!!!! This class will demystify the Arduino micro controller through hands-on work in the lab creating simple and exciting projects.
Ryan Finnigan is a local inventor, roboticist, and one of our co-founders! He has been inventing and building with the Arduino platform for 8+ years, and wants to share his knowledge and passion with you.
The Arduino is a versatile resource for physical computing projects for Makers in all disciplines. Everything from robotics, wearable tech, electronics art, IoT (internet of things), or just fun automation. This course brings students over the beginner’s threshold to a basic understanding of the use, terminology, and potential of the Arduino.
Areas of learning:
- Arduino hardware
- Arduino software
- Project based learning!!!
The class fee includes an Arduino Starter Kit, with all the necessary electronic components to make the class projects, and plenty of other fun components for your early inventions, a total value of $35. You may use your own laptop (please install this software before the class) or use our laptops for the class.
A basic understanding of electronics is recommended to take this class, but not required. We encourage you to take our “Introduction to Electronics” before taking this class.
