Workshops

New Online Workshops

The online courses are conducted via Zoom and cover the same content as the Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced courses, however they are offered in four week blocks instead of eight week terms.
These sessions require participants to have their own computer with the Arduino and Ardublock software installed, and a Techspace Learning Arduino Kit.
These can be purchased for $150 by contacting us at info@techspacelearning.org. Once purchased, this custom kit can be picked up from Aztronics, 170 Sturt Street, Adelaide, or it can be mailed to anywhere in Australia for an additional cost.
In the event that the course is not what was expected, the kit can be returned to us for a refund. The Techspace Learning Arduino kit has all the components required for the complete Beginners course (eight weeks). A Techspace Learning Extension kit is required for the Beginners 2 and Intermediate courses.

Session Price $140 for 4 weeks.

Term 3 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.

Friday, 17/7/20, at 9:30am to 10:30am –  Booking Details

Friday, 17/7/20, at 11:00am to 12:00pm –  Booking Details

Session Price $25.

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

Beginners 1 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.

Friday, 24/07/2020 to 11/09/2020, at 5:00pm to 6:30pm – Booking Details

Session Price $320 for eight weeks.

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, 25/07/2020, to 12/09/2020, at 11:00am to 12:30pm – Booking Details

Session Price $320 for eight 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, 24/07/2020 to 11/09/2020, at 7:00pm to 8:30pm – Booking Details

Session Price $320 for eight 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.

There are no advanced workshops planned for Term 3 2020.
