Arduino from Scratch with Scratch for Arduino

We just can't help the word play
What happens when you combine Arduino, the amazingly simple micro-controller board with Scratch, the ridiculously easy drag-and-drop programming editor? You get awesome!


No prior experience necessary. We'll guide you along as you put together the code and circuit. Suitable for anyone 10 years old and older. But if you already know programming, this is not the course for you.

What to bring

  • Laptop, preferably with the following free software installed:

You don't need to bring an Arduino as we'll lend you a complete starter kit which comes with a variety of components that you can control with Scratch. You won't get to bring it home, but you can always purchase one from us after the course.

What you'll do

We're going to build a few simple projects together:
  • Traffic Light: Learn to control a few LED lights, and make a traffic light pattern or something crazier if you like
  • Light Theremin: We'll make music by waving our hands in thin air
  • Racing Car: Build a racing car game that's controlled by a knob

If you want to do more, sign up for the follow-up workshop More Arduino from Scratch with Scratch for Arduino where we'll do even more fun projects.
