Intro to Computing Electronics with Arduino

Are you a UVic student or Staff member and want to learn more about electronics? If so, then this hands-on workshop will give you an introduction to Arduino, which is an inexpensive and powerful electronic toolkit.

Once you’ve completed this session you’ll be able to wire up basic electronic projects using Arduino and a breadboard. Projects that can do things like: 1. sense heat and illuminate LCD lights (Love-O-Meter), 2. sense motion and randomly display advice on an LCD screen (Lucky 8-Ball), and 3. create spooky noises based on the amount of light reaching a light sensor.  No programming is required for this workshop, but you will get a sense for the types of problems that Arduino devices can help you solve.
