Summer is a great time to start learning how to make things. With the extra daylight (and time, for those of you on summer break) you can learn to make some amazing things. We’re here to help you out with that. June will have our standard electronics workshops and Arduino workshops.

Intro to the Arduino
Saturday, June 12 from 2:00 to 4:00
Cost: $50 for non-members
This workshop will cover the basics of the Arduino. We’ll go over what it is, what it can do, and why you’d want to use it. We’ll also go over a couple of basic programs. This course is great for people who’ve never programmed before and have no microcontroller experience. We’ll give you an Arduino, a breadboard, and some simple components. This workshop requires a laptop.

Programming for the Arduino
Sunday, June 13 from 2:00 to 4:00
Cost: $50 for non-members
If you can make your way around the Arduino IDE but you get lost when it comes to programming it, this workshop’s for you. We’ll cover programming basics like functions, loops, and branches. We’ll use these programming tools to make an interactive LED light show. This class requires an arduino and breadboard. This workshop requires a laptop.

Introduction to Electronics
Sunday, June 27 from 2 to 4:30
Cost: $50 for non-members
This workshop covers everything you need to know to get started in electronics. We’ll start from the basics of electricity and work our way up to using integrated circuits. Fading, blinking, and dimming LEDs help demonstrate key electronics concepts. You’ll leave this workshop with a kit of everything you need to build the circuits we
cover.
