Learn how to use an Arduino, a little bit of programming, and a little bit of
electronics. Absolutely no prior experience required!

What is an Arduino? Have a look at this video.

Want to join?

Just a little bit of preparation is required:

  1. Get in touch and reserve your place before we begin – contact Paul Campbell taniwha@gmail.com or (021)512-614.
  2. You’ll need to bring a laptop, with the free Arduino IDE installed. If you really want to come along, but don’t have a laptop, we can probably work something out – just ask!
  3. Find a USB cable for your new Arduino – there’s a photo at the page in #3
  4. Read through this page Luke and Paul put together, to get a bit more familiar with the kit you’ll receive at the start of the class: http://www.moonbaseotago.com/dunedin-arduino/

Costs are $20 for adults, $10 for students, high school children are free – a free Arduino is included.
