Sparkle Labs Skillshare – Emerging Objects: Design / Program / Prototype

de5ef661

Sign up for the Sparkle Labs Skillshare, an online class where you will learn to design and build an interactive, light-sensitive night light.  The first 100 people to sign up for the class using the code ADAFRUIT get $10 off the class!

The ability to design and create your own working, electronic gadgets is now within reach. Creating a hardware device or interactive sculpture involves many skills. Programming, electronic circuit design, interface design, and fabrication, to name a few.

In this class we will learn the basics you need to create your own devices by taking a project from beginning to end. We will create an interactive night light. Our light will have an Arduino for a brain, a light sensor, a touch sensor, as well as several LEDs.

This will be a studio class where we will learn by doing. The final form the light takes can be set by you or you can follow one of the provided, pre-set patterns. We will begin by learning some basic electronics. We will learn basic programming with the Arduino and then create the final circuit and design the user interface. Finally we will build the exterior and put it all together.

In the end you will have an interactive light that you can expand by adding sensors, buttons, speakers and other components. You will also have an understanding of how an interactive device is created.

You can purchase the class materials from http://sparklelabs.com

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.

  1. Signed up for the class earlier this morning, probably should have waited a little bit to take advantage of the code. Either way, looking forward to it.
