This is a two-day workshop.
Get an introduction to the world of physical computing and electronic design where you use code to control electronic components such as lights and buzzers. Fun, fast and accessible, this workshop focuses on Arduino, an open-source microcontroller language, to bring the components to life. Learn how to code in this language using the ThinkerShield and a standard Arduino board.
Once you have mastered the basics, look at ways of implementing your own electronic designs into projects like musical instruments, arcade game controllers or mini robots. The possibilities are endless!
No need to make lunch these holidays: pre-purchase one of our new lunch packs instead! Please note there will be no access to the cafe on site during The Lab workshops.
