Proposal: “Hello World” Arduino

“The surprise was this: going through this thing was not only not-scary, it was incredibly fun.” – , “Getting Under the Hood With Arduino” Scholars’ Lab

Work together to learn about Arduino microcontrollers and make a LED blink. As a group, we will work through the Adafruit Getting Started Lessons to learn the basic components, download the necessary software, download or write a sketch, and run our first programs. We will also discuss and explore potential applications for libraries and the digital humanities.

Participants will need a laptop and be able to install the Arduino IDE. 10 kits will be available to session attendees.
