Pasadena is a big drive, but Arduino is on my child’s interest list. I hope to find a nearby class. The following is from http://deezmaker-arduino101-04-2013-eorg.eventbrite.com/#:
This workshop includes a take-home Arduino “Leonardo” board and a couple of components specially made by Qtechknow (http://www.qtechknow.com) to use during the class and for you to explore the Arduino beyond this class.
Arduino this…Arduino that… What the heck is an Arduino? What does it do? And how can I use it?
Deezmaker is hosting an Arduino class for kids AND adults so that you can find out these answers and learn the basics about this affordable and easy-to-use microcontroller and how it will change your life.
“Qtechknow”, a 12 year old Arduino genius, will be teaching a hands-on workshop on how to work with an Arduino and what the technology is all about, including how it got started and how to write simple programs to make it do really cool stuff.
Here are the topics that we’ll cover in this class:
- What the Arduino is and where it came from
- Arduino Shield Concepts
- Software Basics
- Simple Programming and Coding
- How inputs and outputs are used
- A walkthrough of 5 simple hands-on projects
- An open question and answer session with Qtechknow
