Overview

Do you want to create a gizmo?   Make lights blink?  Spray the cat with water when it jumps on the counter?  Learn how to program a $25 miniature computer?

Fun with Arduino is a course run one night a week for five weeks on the Arduino microcontroller.  Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.


There is an intro course that requires no electronics experience, and only minimal programming experience.  You’ll get the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit plus a few extra things. The intermediate course assumes that you’re familiar with Arduino or another microcontroller, comfortable wiring things up, and that you already have some general hardware (LEDs, breadboard, etc.)
