Update (July 8, 2016): CANCELLED due to scheduling conflict. So sorry, but we will reschedule this event in the next month or 2. -- Douglas

I’ll be presenting this kid-friendly Arduino session this Saturday, July 9, 2016 @ 1 pm at Meltdown Comics.

What is an Arduino? What can it do?

Arduino Microcontrollers are tiny, palm-of-your-hand-sized customizable computers that you can make do amazing things -- but how do they work?
At this session children will learn how Arduinos perform their technological "magic" by becoming part of one.

Dive inside the Arduino as you become the individual components of the board and act as various sensors and displays.

Run a program processing data, inputs, outputs, writing to displays and more. Move bits and bytes around the room and develop a deeper understanding of what happens at the microscopic level of the Arduino. You'll make the Arduino come alive and learn how you can make it do almost anything you wish.

Douglas E. Welch becomes your Master Control Program and leads you through your day as part of a real-life Arduino Microcontroller.
