We invite you to attend this upcoming workshop as part of our new GC Maker Space: registration is already underway!
Introduction to Physical Computing with Arduino
Wednesday, November 9th, 6:30-8:30 PM
Registration opens November 2nd
Workshop Leaders: Mary Catherine Kinniburgh and Jojo Karlin.
We spend plenty of time with our computers, websites, and maybe even code: but how familiar do we feel with the circuits, wiring, and sensors that make all this possible? Physical computing uses hardware and software to build digital devices that respond to our analog world–or perhaps more poetically, to make vivid the relationship between humans and computational materials. In this workshop, we will explore the foundations of physical computing as a practice in process, rather than product. Join us for this absolutely no-experience necessary workshop to introduce you to the basics of using Arduino, an open-source hardware and software prototyping platform, so you can begin to consider and develop your own physical computing projects in collaboration with the Maker Space at the Digital Scholarship Lab. We’re serious: no experience required! Here, we’re using experimentation and play as a way to think about interactivity in our computational world.
For questions, please contact us. We hope to see you there!
