Want to build a banana piano or a temperature sensor alarm? Maybe you want a houseplant to Tweet when it needs watering, or you're just interested in learning more about electronics and how they work?

This workshop will introduce the basics, pros and cons of Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Makey Makey, three microcontrollers which allow interactions between computers and the physical world.? Participants will get hands-on time to build simple example circuits, and all types of kits are available for checkout from Parks Library for continued exploration after the workshop.

Prior experience with coding is helpful but not required. Desktop computers will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own laptop if you want to save and edit your work afterward.

Thursday, April 6
3:00 - 4:30 P.M.

Limited seating. Preregister through Learn@ISU.
