“Arduino is a free hardware platform, based on a board with a microcontroller and a development environment, designed to facilitate the use of electronics in multidisciplinary projects.”
The course is structured in 3 modules:
- Basic level: March 31 and April 1. Initial module where we will work on electronics concepts, using components such as resistors, diodes, sensors and various actuators.
- Intermediate Level: April 21 and 22. Module of 3D printing or additive manufacturing that will allow to manufacture components designed by the interested parties in an economical and fast way.
- Advanced Level: May 19 and 20. Robot and crane module in which the minimum expression of a mobile robot will be developed by assembling the components and giving it a pedagogical added value by using a chassis made with 3D printing.
FREE workshop aimed at people over 16 years old with interest and curiosity for technology, open-hardware electronics and with interest in experimenting with interactive elements. No previous programming knowledge is required.
Limited places: 30
- Opening of the registration process on Monday, January 20, 2017 at 9am.
- The process is by order of registration,
- Once the 30 places are filled, a reserve list of 10 places will be created*.
Once the pre-registrations have been received, a confirmation email will be sent to the registrants.
YOU WILL LEARN DURING THE COURSE
The Arduino board was developed in Italy by Professor Massimo Banzi who wanted to quickly teach designers how to work with electronics to incorporate elements, lights, sound and movements, among others, into their designs. Arduino is a free (open) hardware platform with some computing power that is distinguished by its ability to interact through digital and analog inputs and outputs.
We will work on electronics concepts, using components such as resistors and diodes, as well as various sensors and actuators: potentiometers, LEDs, servomotors and proximity sensors. A Protoboard will also be used as an extension for the connections of the Arduino board by means of cables prepared for this purpose.
3D printing or additive manufacturing allows us to manufacture components designed by ourselves or downloaded from web pages in an economical and fast way (compared to traditional manufacturing for single productions or short series). During the workshops there will be hands-on practice with 3D printed platforms.
Robot and Crane – educational platforms
For the development of the practice, we start from the minimum expression of mobile robot, putting together the components described above and giving it an added value pedagogically by using a chassis made with 3D printing.
