We gave last weekend a Arduino workshop for beginners on the Gogbot, an art event in Enschede. The workshop itself is very basic, the participants learn how to wire up 8 leds on a breadboard and how to make them blink and making a loop light.
You can use this material as you like, but we would appreciate a message if you use it ;-)
