Last year, we built Arduinos from components, this year we program them. Bring the Arduino you built last year, or any Arduino or clone you have, and ApolloCon's resident geek (David Brummel) and one of the co-hosts of 90.1 KPFT's Technology Bytes (Barrett Canon) will show you how to build some simple circuits and program your Arduino to drive them. The workshops includes a parts kit, program code, circuit diagrams and reference materials.
There will be a Materials Fee of $25.
No Soldering Required.
BRING YOUR OWN LAPTOP, ARDUINO, AND USB CABLE.
We will have a few extra Arduinos you can borrow/purchase.
Duration: 2 hours. Time and place: TBA.
