Arduino Laboratory Workshop is coming to
OC Mini Maker Fair!
What is an Arduino? It’s not the latest shoe from Italy. But it is a cool very inexpensive Single board computer designed in Italy. This is digital technology that everyone can afford and use for both practical and far out projects.
Come learn how everyday people are taking control of the digital revolution. Arduno’s are used in all kinds of projects: robotics, flying things, musical instruments, movie props, Halloween decorations and anything you can dream of.
There is a large ecosystem of suppliers that can sell add-ons to make them do or react to all manner of interesting things.
The development Environment is free and simple to use. At this workshop you will actually build an Arduino project. Learn how to make techno cool gadgets Italian Style!
In the workshop you will be able to purchase a kit with everything you need: parts, software and plans to construct your own Arduino projects. Technical expert with infinite patience will be on hand to assist! We will do our best to help. You will be able to select projects of varying complexity. There is a craft element to these kits. The physical part of the project will mostly be foam board. Some assembly required. For extra credit apply your own graphics. We will have a PC with the necessary Arduino software. But if you bring your own laptop you will have more time to play. This can be a team sport. Having a lab partner can be fun. Things to bring to the workshop if you can:
A #2 pencil*. Or similar with a large eraser.
A sense of adventure and creativity.
Coloring outside the lines is encouraged.
* Laptop not required to participate.
