Electronics Project Build and Take Home: Arduino Gear Box Project + Intro to Arduino

Class Overview

This class explores the basics of micro controllers. Arduino is a great platform for learning about circuits and how to program micro controllers. For those who don’t have experience with circuits or micro controllers it can be hard to know where to start. In this class we will see the basics, so that you can get experimenting and learn how much fun can be had with circuits.

We will also learn how to control Servo Motors and build a gear box controlled by an Arduino.

Class Cost

  • $50 for non-members including materials costs. You will be getting your very own Arduino micro-controller, laser cut parts, servo motor and power supply to construct your project which you will bring home with you at the end of class.
  • $40 for monthly members including materials costs to build your very own take home project (parts listed above)(you do not need to be a member to attend our classes, however, members do get discounts!) Learn about membership



Materials Used

-Arduino Gear Box Kit (You will take it home)
-Power Supply
-Please bring your laptop, although we have available computers at our shop, it is recommended to bring your laptop for future practice outside our shop. Please have the Arduino Software installed on it before arriving to class. Choose ‘Download the Arduino IDE’ from the Arduino software page

Age Requirement
