This course is designed to provide an introduction to Arduinos and electronics by workshopping bike-related projects. No prior programming knowledge or electronics experience is required. Projects include:
Although these projects are designed with bikes in mind, the skills (and components) are important or useful for a myriad of electronics projects. If the course sounds interesting but you’d prefer to workshop something different, I’d be more than happy to accomodate!
The price of the course includes materials.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
