Workshops

Term 2 Workshops 2020

The Arduino is a small, cheap, open-source microprocessor platform that is designed to allow anyone to explore the possibilities of automation and robotics.
Our workshops are STEM-based educational demonstrations of how to program the Arduino microprocessor. These structured, yet informal sessions are hands-on and are designed to empower the participants with enough knowledge to be able to build their own robots and gadgets. 
There are no strict limits on age or experience, anyone can learn how to utilise this technology to its fullest potential.

Introductory Workshop

This one-off session is a taste-tester and introduction to the Arduino microprosessor and programming using ArduBlock, a “drag and drop” interface. No previous experience required.

The following workshops run over the course of 8 weeks (1 school term)

Beginners Workshops

The aim of the Beginners workshops is to empower the participants with enough knowledge to be able to make their own basic projects using ArduBlock. These workshops are aimed at participants who may have little to no experience in microprocessor programming.

Beginners 2 Workshops

The course continues on from the Beginners course and adds more complex devices and methods to achieve much more with the Arduino. These sessions still use the ArduBlock programming system. Participants must have completed our Beginners course to qualify for these sessions.

Saturday, 2/05/20 to 27/06/20, at 11:00AM to 12:30 PM – Booking Details

Session Price $320 for 8 weeks

Intermediate Workshops

The Intermediate workshops build on the basic skills and participants learn to type in lines of code to program the Arduino in it’s native C-based language. Reasonable keyboard skills are required and some previous experience with Ardublock or similar programming is advisable.

Friday, 01/05/20 to 26/06/20, at 7:00PM to 8:30 PM – Booking Details

Session Price $320 for 8 weeks

Advanced Workshops

The Advanced workshops will expand the participants knowledge of the more complex techniques, modules and devices that are available for the Arduino platform and demonstrating how to use them. Moderate knowledge of Arduino programming is required.

No planned workshops for term 2 2020, check back next term.

Due to the current health crisis, all workshops have been suspended and will resume upon further notice. We are working to move learning online, watch this space.
