This past Wednesday the Innovation Lab and Saket Ati, the president of IEEE, hosted a hands on Ardrunio workshop. The workshop, for beginners, focuses on the different parts of the Ardrunio and what they are used for. Ati discussed how to set up simple cirucits with blinking lights, buttons and buzzers. After the basics were covered, participants practiced uploading small C programs using the Ardruino’s IDE software. The goal of the workshop was not just to teach the basics of Ardrunio but, to show the variety of projects that the Ardruino can be used for in real world applications.
