  • Electronics are everywhere in our world. From toys to appliances to wheelchairs and iPhones. Simple Electronics will introduce the Arduino microcontroller, an inexpensive tiny microcontroller computer. We will program the Arduino to turn on/off LED lights and control other electronic components, we will use sensors to detect the physical world and have an example with basic home automation. Attendees will be able to make and program a simple circuit that they can take home to share with friends and family.
