Introduction To Arduino
This on-site interactive class will introduce students to the Arduino Micro controller.
Arduino is a platform for developing hardware that interfaces with the physical world.
Our creative work in video production incorporates the understanding of how light, sound, time, and space affect us emotionally. We find experimenting with sound, light, and electronics gives us a better understanding of these natural phenomenon, and how we can work with them on a basic level to enrich our storytelling abilities.
The Arduino can be used in robotics, art installations, 3D printers, and other do-it-yourself electronics projects. From night lights, to plant watering systems, to art projects, Arduino is a gateway to the connected universe.
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The micro controller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language and the Arduino development environment. Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer.
The boards can be built from a kit or purchased per-assembled; the software can be downloaded for free. Numerous example programs (“sketches”) are available under an open-source license where users are free to adapt them for their own needs.
This class offers simple introduction to the system and the ideas behind it. You’ll be provided with an Arduino Nano and build your own simple project to take home with you. This program will give you all the tools you need to continue learning with Arduino. Ages 10 and up.
