Due to unforeseen circumstances this workshop has been cancelled.
Workshop Leader: Jenn Karson, University of Vermont
An electronics platform, the Arduino is based on relatively easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone (designers, inventors, musicians, educators, artists, makers, architects, scientists, and researchers) interested in making interactive projects, prototypes, and tools. Design with the Arduino gives one the ability to define inputs and outputs like sensing, light, sound, and motion. In this short workshop we’ll explore its founding philosophy and provide hands-on time for building simple circuits and interactions. We’ll also discuss how the Arduino and similar technologies are integrated into higher education art courses. You do not need any previous experience or knowledge to take this workshop. We encourage everyone who is interested to join the fun!
Workshop Specializations: Pedagogy-Educational Strategies-Teaching Methodology, Materials-Art Making Techniques-Studio Practice
Required Workshop Materials: Participants will need to bring a charged laptop and download the Arduino IDE in advance of the workshop https://www.arduino.cc/. Provided by the instructor: Five Arduino kits (two participants per kit).
