Arduino is a small circuit board that you can use to bring the physical world into the data world, and the data world into the physical world. For example, you can measure temperature, light, CO2, distance, movement or humidity, and connect buttons, switches or displays to control and display information, or motors to set something in motion. If you see an electronic installation, it is likely that Arduino is in use.

In this short workshop we will give an introduction to Arduino, power and – don’t be afraid! – programming. You don’t need to know anything about any of this (but if you do have some experience, that’s all right too)!

About Verktøykassen

Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
