Arduino 101


Learn to create interactive objects with the popular Arduino board!

In this evening class for adults and teens, we will show you how to build simple interactive systems with an Arduino micro-controller, used by millions of makers around the world.  You will learn how to make lights blink, play sounds, move things — and bring it all together to create a fun interactive experience.

No classes are scheduled for Arduino 101 at this time. Check our Classes listing for future courses.


Join our Arduino 101 summer course at Tam High to make interactive objects like this one.
