Learn how to use electronics to build simple things like an LED night light and a musical device you play just by waving your hand in the air! With the basics you'll pick up during this course, you can move on to tinker and build lots more cool stuff limited only by your imagination. Even a tiny tofu piano.

The Maker Movement is here. Amateur makers are hard at work prototyping new devices from 3D printing pens, Internet-controlled coffee machines, to the ArduSat satellite. Arduino is a widely-used prototyping platform for many of these projects. Join the movement now!


Workshop Dates
The workshop consists of two 3-hour sessions. Do take note of both dates:
18 Dec 2013 - Wednesday morning 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.
20 Dec 2013 - Friday morning 9:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Workshop Description
Using the Arduino, we teach fundamental concepts of computational thinking. These concepts are widely applicable in future programming languages you may pick up, e.g. building web apps with Python, or mobile apps with Objective-C.

You'll also get our Arduino Starter Kit which is yours at the end of the workshop.

Our material is accessible to everyone 13 years old and above with very little or no programming experience. You just need an interest to pick up programming and/or play around with electronics. We also welcome big kids long out of school (like us) who just want to start tinkering.

What You’ll Learn
How to use the Arduino, together with these components:
- Servo Motor
- DC Motor
- Buzzer
- Switch
- Trimmer Potentiometer ("Knob")
- Light Sensor
- Temperature Sensor

Tickets are $240 each, inclusive of starter kit worth $90.


"The greatest learning for me was the hardware part of the workshop ... and getting some hands-on on the hardware was really useful" – Veronica, past participant

"If only they taught us programming like this back when I was in school. This makes so much more sense" - Don, past participant
