EE102: Intro to Arduino
EE102 is a quick 60 minute workshop that introduces you to the exciting world of Arduino, very popular microcontrollers made up of flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino can be used to make all sorts of electronic projects with sensors, lights, and motors. Arduino microcontrollers are designed for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments. What you create is really only limited to your imagination!
By the end of the EE102 workshop, you should have a firm understanding of what Arduino microcontrollers are, how they work, how to effectively program in the Arduino software, and how to build a basic circuit.
Select a location to enroll in a workshop, resume a quiz, or reserve equipment in your local instance of the MAP.
In this course, you'll learn:
The basics behind Arduino, and microcontrollers in general.
Anatomy of a common Arduino board and its key components, including analog and digital pins.
The Arduino IDE, and a run down of the best practices, libraries, and basic programming skills, tips, and tricks.
Practical applications, including how to build a simple blinking LED.
