Do you like to tinker and make, but are intimidated by coding? Learn how to use Arduinos to do just about anything without ever writing a line of code by tapping into the vast amount of open source projects available to anyone.  You will learn how to read and design Arduino-specific circuit diagrams, identify and assemble circuit components, and integrate 3D printers and/or laser cutters to produce more effective products.  No prior experience necessary.  Each attendee will leave with a working product to share with their students.

COST:  $135 (Includes 1 complete starter kit valued at $35 and sample 3D prints/Laser cut parts to keep)
