|Event:||Learning the Arduino: Controlling Motors|
|Date:||Saturday, April 6, 2013|
|Time:||2:00 to 4:00 PM|
Arduino is an easy-to-use electronics programming system used by artists, designers, and hobbyists. Arduino hardware plays a vital role in our Hylozoic Veil installation! Members of the University of Utah School of Computing extend the function of this powerful system by demonstrating how to use Arduino programming to make devices which can move.
Our Hylozoic Veil installation uses memory metal motors to move the leaves and fronds in response to nearby objects.
$15 per person
Suggested for ages 13+
This is the third in a series of three workshops designed as a primer to Arduino system. Some prior experience is required for this event. Participants should either have attended the first and/or second workshops in this series “Learning the Arduino: Basic Programming” and “Learn the Arduino: Controlling Sensors” or be experienced users and fast learners with some knowledge of the C programming language.
