EEE312: Arduino Part 5 - Inputs
Class Number 707-53979

The Arduino Inputs class builds on participants' experiences in the earlier Arduino classes and focuses on how to work with information from a variety of external hardware devices.

You will wire and program several projects to explore how to interpret and utilize the signals that different inputs feed into the Arduino, as well as learn how to write programs that work with these values.

Class projects include advanced button work, noise detection, creating a touch sensor out of any capacitive surface, working with light and heat, and even using an accelerometer to detect motion like modern video game controllers or smart phones.

Prerequisites:A good understanding of Arduino programming, which you can learn from TechShop Arduino classes. Please bring a functioning Arduino and breadboard kit to class.

Materials fee covers a piezo buzzer, a variable resistor, a thermistor, a photo resistor, an accelerometer, and various small parts required for the class. They are yours to keep afterwards.
