This is a three-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, unleash your creativity over 3 days to rapidly design and create a product utilising code and physical materials.

Take your final product home with you including a ThinkerShield Coding Kit valued at $69.95.
