Arduino 101 Class at Tam Makers
We all had a great time in our first Arduino 101 class at Tam Makers, our new makerspace in Mill Valley. I taught this course with co-instructor Donald Day at the wood shop at Tamalpais High School in Mill Valley on June 16, 2016.
A diverse group of ten students joined the class, including artists, technologists and people interested in learning new skills, as well as high school and middle school students and their parents. My partner Geo Monley and our friend Howard Rheingold also helped mentor the students during the hands-on sessions.
We started the class at 6pm, with an introduction to the popular Arduino processor, which is used by millions of hobbyists and makers around the world. We then showed people how to make lights blink and play sounds with their Arduinos, alternating between short presentations and hands-on experimentation.
Students seemed to really enjoy this class and told us they learned a lot from it. We’re really happy that this first class went so well and look forward to our next two classes.
