SparkFun, Arduino Basics (Washington, DC)

Learn how to blink LEDs, read inputs and use a breadboard, all in four hours! This class is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren’t entirely sure about how the basics work. It’s easier than you think! We will put together basic single component electrical circuits, learn about analog and digital, input and output, as well as basic programming concepts. In case you haven’t noticed the key word here is basic. Attendees will create three simple circuits highlighting analog and digital forms of input and output.

This workshop is free and open to anyone attending the pre-USASEF educator workshop on the 24th and 25th of April. Space is limited to 30.

Time: Thursday, April 24th, 1 PM - 5 PM

Location: Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Room 140B Washington D.C.

What to bring: Yourself and an interest in teaching technology!
