Explore how to create interactive electronic objects with Arduino, an open-source electronic prototyping platform with a wide range of possibilities.
Arduino can be used to create interactive projects to interface motors, lights, sensors and many more electronics parts together. This workshop, led by Antoine “Arthur” Hureau, will cover the basics of programming and electronics to getting started with the development of creative projects around Arduino and some of its possibilities. No prior experience is required.
Time: 10–12 May, 13:00–16:00 each day
Place: BEK, C. Sundts gate 55
