EEE103: Arduino Part 1 - Building An Arduino - Educato

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.

EEE102: Arduino Part 1 - Building an Arduino - BBB

Add electronic brains to your projects.

This class is for people who make stuff and would like to add some basic automation but have not yet worked with microprocessors. This is the first in a series of Arduino classes, and the Barebones Arduino board is the backbone for all of the other Arduino classes. You will build a Bare Bones Board Arduino (BBB) and a BUB board, which will be used to upload programs to the BBB you just built, using soldering irons. (You can learn to program the BBB in the Arduino Part 2 class!) No experience is needed.

Prerequisites: Being able to solder small parts. We also recommend that you take the Soldering and Electronics Basics SBU before this class.
