Arduino is 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. (www.arduino.cc ) Arduino makes it easy to learn how to read sensors, control electronic devices, and communicate between various hardware and your computer.

Requirements:
- Laptop (Mac OS X, Windows or Linux) with a USB port
- Software installed (Optional):
- Arduino IDE (http://Arduino.cc/en/Main/Software)
- Processing (http://processing.org/download/)

Good to bring (optional):
- Some experience with a programming language.
If you know what if statements and loops are, you’ll be in great shape.
- Some basic knowledge of electric circuits
- Wire cutters / strippers

The workshop will start at 7pm and will run until 9pm. Participation is free, but registration is compulsory. In order to secure a place, please leave a comment here or join our Facebook event.
