Arduino LED Sequencer Workshop #ArtTuesday #Arduino
Idea Fab Labs in Santa Cruz is hosting an Arduino Sequencer workshop, via IdeaFabLabs
Have you ever wanted to create your own light display? Or maybe just learn enough code to program a light sequence? This workshop will get you up to speed with programming for the physical world so you can do just that. We’ll learn how to turn on and off a sequence of lights with code and learn about other programmatic lighting effects. In the process, we’ll cover an introduction to Arduino: an open-source micro-controller with the ability to quickly and easily interface with a variety of sensors, electronics, and software making it a staple of physical computing in artistic applications. With this knowledge you’ll be able to create your own light installations and even build upon them to create more complex pieces of art.

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.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
