Fun with Arduino & Sensors – Introductory Workshop

Interested in learning more about Arduino? Have great ideas that use sensors to make your life better? Want to collect data and analyse them on the cloud? Join us for this introductory workshop!

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects. You can collect inputs from sensors, then control lights, motors, and other actuators based on certain conditions. You can tell your Arduino what to do by writing code in the Arduino programming language.

Join us for this introductory workshop in the lead-up to a hands-on session on 11th October where you get to build your own data collecting device!
