Intro to Arduino Programming and Animated Fashion (Bracelet)
In this workshop, participants will use the micro:bit’s drag and drop interface, MakeCode, to learn how to code the device. Students will walk through the various features of a micro:bit and learn how the code they create can activate animation, temperature sensing, radio buttons and motion sensors. Students will also design and make their own animated bracelet.
The credit-card sized Arduino board is used in robotics, to control sensors, or to create wearable technology. In this workshop, students will get hands-on with their own Arduino to create projects using sensors and light displays. No coding experience is required.
