Intro to Arduino – Add lights, motion, automation to your next project

Imagine creating a simple machine that will automatically water your plants. Maybe you want to add some lights, sound, or motion to a costume project. Artists, designers, hobbyists, and tinkerers are learning new and easy techniques to bring such projects to life.

Halifax Makerspace, in partnership with Dalhousie Libraries, want to get you started in the basics of electronics and the Arduino platform. Arduinos are a piece of technology that you can fit in the palm of your hand, connecting your project to electronics, giving it “life.”

For the next four weeks (Feb. 23 – Mar. 16), we’re hosting workshops every Thursday evening from 6:30pm-8pm. Week One will cover the basics of what an Arduino is and what you can do with it. We will jump in and teach you some introductory electronics and programming. Each week we will progress and show you more of what you can do with an Arduino and how it can help you with your own projects. If you miss a week, don’t worry you can still catch up by arriving at 6pm the following week for a summary of what we covered.

Registration is free but seats are limited to 15 people per class. You will need to register for each week you wish to attend. If after registering you are unable to attend please cancel (or let us know) so that someone else can take your seat. “No shows” will be prevented from registering for further sessions.
