Arduino is a complete ecosystem of electronic and software components to create novel useful electronic devices easily. Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
The class consist of 45 2-hour sessions. This class is designed for anyone interested to get started with the powerful Arduino ecosystem. The class is held at E::SPACE, 48 SE Bridgeford Blvd, Suite 180.
Schedule for the five sessions are:
Goals for the class are:
Materials supplied for the students for use in the class:
All materials made available for use
Arduino Board (Arduino Uno )
USB cable (A-B)
Solderless Breadboard and jumper wires
(Students may want to purchase one of the Arduino Starter Kits available on the market for their own. Recommendations for purchase are available)
Cost of the Introduction to Arduino Class
$125.00 includes use of all materials

The Arduino UNO R3 is a microcontroller board based on the ATmega328. It has 14 digital input/output pins (of which 6 can be used as PWM outputs), 6 analog inputs, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a USB connection, a power jack, an ICSP header, and a reset button. It contains everything needed to support the microcontroller; simply connect it to a computer with a USB cable or power it with a AC-to-DC adapter or battery to get started.
Physical Computing is an approach to learning how humans communicate through computers that starts by considering how humans express themselves physically. A lot of beginning computer interface design instruction takes the computer hardware for given — namely, that there is a keyboard, a screen, perhaps speakers, and a mouse — and concentrates on teaching the software necessary to design within those boundaries. In physical computing, we take the human body as a given, and attempt to design within the limits of its expression.
The Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) is a cross-platform application written in Java, and derives from the IDE for the Processing programming language and the Wiring projects. It is designed to introduce programming to artists and other newcomers unfamiliar with software development. It includes a code editor with features such as syntax highlighting, brace matching, and automatic indentation, and is also capable of compiling and uploading programs to the board with a single click. A program or code written for Arduino is called a "sketch".
Arduino programs are written in C or C++.
Rapid prototyping with arduino means using solderless breadboarding, arduino programming language and the Arduino shields allowing complex functions easily added to the device .
