Arduino is a microcontroller platform broadly used in the fields of art and design. It is used in creating all kinds of interactive artifacts, art installations, and prototypes. It is also an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

This introductory, hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the basics of the Arduino. The projects will include:

* Make a blinky light
* Control your blinky light with a pushbutton
* Control your blinky light with a light sensor
* Control a servo (found in radio-controlled cars, puppets, and robots)
* Control a servo with a knob

No programming or electronics experience is necessary. Participants will need to bring a laptop; however, there will be two laptops available for those who do not have one. Please email us at info@thefusefactory.org to reserve a laptop. This workshop is suitable for youth and adults.
