Low-cost microcontrollers, such as the Arduino ($8-$25), have revolutionized the way we connect the real and virtual worlds. The credit-card sized Arduino board can be used in robotics to control sensors or create wearable technology. In this workshop, students will get hands-on with their own Arduino creating projects using sensors and light displays. No coding experience is required. Note: The workshop will begin with a tour of Parata and their robots! Girls will see where engineers design, manufacturing teams build, and technical experts support pharmacies across the country to help people lead healthier lives. Please try to arrive at least 15 min early so we can start the tour promptly in order to leave enough time to complete the workshop. Registrants will be met with signs and a greeter. Please bring a laptop with Arduino IDE Software pre downloaded. Snacks will be provided.
Event run by Parata Systems. Please email Jenna May with any questions.
