Design Visualization Laboratory Workshop Series, Session 6
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on exible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
The Arduino workshop will be held from 6:30-9:30p on Wednesday, October 22nd. Participants are shown and experiment with the Arduino's capabilities and learn the basics of common microcontroller interfacing.
Workshops are open to students, faculty, and staff. Class seats are limited, so RSVP to Alejandro Borsani (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 21th.
A laptop with the Arduino Software and drivers installed is required. Please visit
