Saturday Jan 21 & 28
Learn how to solder and program electronics in this introductory workshop!
We will be assembling an Educato Kit: an Arduino - compatible microcontroller that is perfect for beginners and prototyping new projects.
The first session will go over each electronic component used in assembly, the layout of the board, and troubleshooting to ensure proper assembly. The second session will go over reading schematics, the basics of electric theory, the Arduino language, programming and circuit assembly on a breadboard.
Participants will leave with soldering skills and a fancy new tool to add to their arsenal of creativity.
With this knowledge, you will also be able to make simple repairs on electronics that were once thought broken for good! Educato Kit is provided.
