Arduino 101


Learn to create interactive objects with the popular Arduino board!

We no longer offer Arduino 101 as a stand alone course. However, you can learn how to use and create with Arduinos at Makers Workshop.

See below for descriptions and info from our old course Arduino 101.

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.

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