Freediuino Spring Training
Freeduino Spring Training
May 18, 2010
LVL1 is proud to announce it’s latest class- the Freeduino Spring Training Workshop. Time and place is May 18, 2010 from 7-10 pm at the U of L Speed School Room 210. This workshop will help you learn the skills to be able to play with that shiny Arduino or Freeduino that you have been dying to figure out! Our coaches will step you through building several fun circuits that demonstrate how to interface your Arduino with LED’s, LCD’s, switches, sensors, potentiometers, motors and sound. After taking this class, you should be able to breadboard a circuit and then program your Arduino. We know this class will be a GRAND SLAM!
The cost of the workshop is $50 ($80 if you need a Freeduino). Besides the world class instruction, you will get your very own breadboard, several LED’s (even a tri-colored one), a cool blue LCD display, a temperature sensor, a photo sensor, several switches, many resistors (with brightly colored bands!), a few potentiometers, a motor and a speaker… everything you need to batter up!
Below are the lessons for the Freeduino Spring Training. They are Creative Commons licensed, so share and use. Pass them along. If there are issues (bugs) with the instruction, code or circuits, then email me brian_at_lvl1.org. The breadboard and schematic pictures are drawn using the Fritzing Program. Try Fritzing out - it is really cool!
