EEE103: Arduino Part 1 - Building An Arduino - Educato
Class Number 1095-52541

The Arduino is a microcontroller; a small computer that has a single function. Microcontrollers run everyday items like toaster ovens, electronic toys and MP3 players. An Arduino can be programmed to monitor sensors and watch for inputs like temperature, pressure, light, voltage or a button or switch. It can also be programmed to control switches, relays, motors and other outputs. There are many add on boards, called shields, that add features like WiFi, GPS and card readers.

Electronic "smarts" can be added to projects to make them interactive. For example, a pet door could be modified to lock if it's dark outside and the temperature is below 45 degrees.

This class is the first step in using the Arduino: soldering the parts onto the circuit board. Come to class with some basic soldering experience and get help and guidance while assembling the board.

Materials fee: includes an Arduino Educato that you keep for your own projects.
