Our first immersive course was such a success, we’re going to do it again! The improvements we’re making based on our first course should make this one even better.  Get more than just an introduction to the exciting world of controlling stuff using low-cost microcontrollers! This hands on series of three consecutive sessions gets you going with your own Arduino microcontroller and parts kit, which are yours to keep.  Wayne Wall, experienced computer engineer and instructor will guide you in understanding how to construct your own circuits and program them to your specific needs.

This course is for beginners who may have no prior knowledge of electronics or programming.  The hands-on immersive style allows you to gain knowledge and skill in each session, then continue work at home between sessions.  Additional assistance will be available from Wayne, as well as others, via a free instant messaging app which can be installed on your computer and/or smartphone.  There will be several project themes you can choose from depending on your personal interest. More specifically:

  • Each session will be held at GJmakerspace from 9:00 am until noon on three consecutive Saturdays (June 16, 23, 30).
  • Attendees should bring their own Windows or Macintosh computers (laptops preferred) in order to run the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment), which is necessary to create programs for the Arduino.  (Instructions on how to download and install the IDE will be provided beforehand.) If you can't bring your own computer let us know before the class starts and we'll try to make one available in the classroom for you.
  • The course cost is $99 for GJmakerspace members and $125 for non-members and is limited to the first 10 prepaid enrollees.  (Minimum age: 15 years.  Minors require parental/guardian permission.)  Enrollment ends June 14.
