Arduino Intro Course Day

This weekend we ran our first micro electronics course based on the popular Arduino learning platform and we were very well subscribed. We had some great kit to demo on the day and during the session guests managed to work out how to:

  • about the differing Arduino board/options
  • basic communication protocols
  • differences between analog and digital pins
  • how to install the drivers and IDE
  • upload code to the microprocessor
  • layout some circuits and troubleshoot
  • get everything hooked up and working

On top of that the attendees made:

  • a working night light
  • a heating/cooling system

I’m pretty sure everyone had a fab day and we’ve now accumulated some great kit and we hope to have a follow up programming course too soon.
