Set up 5 simple Arduino experiments using light, motion, and sound outputs.
When designer Massimo Banzi created the Arduino in 2005, he had no idea that his tiny, open-source microcontroller would spark a revolution.
Today, thousands of non-engineers have created amazing projects, interactive experiments, and clever fixes using this simple piece of hardware.
In this Skillshare class, Mark Frauenfelder, founder of Boing Boing and MAKE magazine, shows you how to get started with a few simple Arduino projects, giving you the confidence and skill to begin experimenting with projects on your own!
No knowledge of programming, engineering, or electronics is necessary, and everyone is welcome. The class focuses on hardware to get you using the board right away.
The best way to learn is by doing, and the best way to dream is to dream big. Use this class to kick off your Arduino skills. Join the DIY revolution.
What You'll Do
In one hour, Mark guides you through the Arduino hardware components, software installation, and five beginner-level experiments.
