So, we had a blast last Saturday tinkering on Arduinos for the first time (well, for most of us), at [ SPACE ].
Artemis led us through a great 3 hour P2P sesh on Arduinos and sensors. We learned:
– how to make a circuit using the Arduino, a breadboard, and some wires
– how to make a little LED light blink using the above, plus a wee bit of easy programming
– using buttons to open and close circuits
– using potentiometers (mouthful there) to dim/brighten LEDs.
It was awesome, and I’m really looking forward to our upcoming workshops now. I’ll post some pics below.

She’s a PC too…
Now let’s try the blue one!

Sonia and Sophie, showing off their work. It works! It really works!
And in case you lost your notes, ladies, I have Artemis’s sketches too. For whatever reason, WordPress has rotated them, so just turn your head 90 degrees counter-clockwise.
