Make a headpiece to complete your Halloween costume OR add lights to a costume that you already have – and learn how to control individually addressable RGB NeoPixel lights with the Arduino Gemma at Emma Bistro on October 17!
If you need help with installing the Arduino IDE on your computer, please plan on arriving at 10:30.
$35 of that $60 is for supplies.
I’m not taking an instructor’s fee – $25 of the total cost goes to Make Nashville so that we can put on MORE workshops.
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.
