FabShops - Intro to Electronic Prototyping (Arduino IDE)


Learn how to work with an Arduino, a popular open-source electronics prototyping framework! This introductory workshop will teach you the basics of programming an Arduino and how to apply that to your projects. We'll go over some basic programming tools and commands needed to work with Arduino, how to build circuits on a breadboard, and overview available Arduinos. After attending this FabShop, attendees can schedule private lessons with lab assistants to further develop their skills by building their own project in-person!
