Celebrating Arduino Day in Halifax

Arduino….

“an open-source, electronics prototyping platform”

(Basically a way of creating interactive objects and environments through code and electronics. A way of creating intelligence for the physical world  – think Internet of Things.)

…. is having a birthday. On the 29th March, the platform will be 10 years old (yay!) and we’d like to celebrate this in Halifax through a series of interactive events.

We’re proposing:

    • Three workshops, one beginner and two intermediate
    • The beginner workshop will be an introduction to Arduino using Sparkfun kits
    • The intermediate workshops will focus on robotics and wearables
    • Game design with MakeyMakey
    • Interactive art installation
    • Learn how to solder session
    • Social Show & Tell (have a drink, bite to eat and hear about local projects) – to be held at Volta Labs

Most of the events will run at the Institute of Applied Creativity (IAC) at NSCAD (next to Seaport Market), 1061 Marginal Rd.
