About this event

This is our very first Maker event! The workshop will be a quick chance to learn more about designing for hardware.

The teachers will provide an introduction to Arduino, the Temboo Device Coder, and the Internet of Things, followed by a chance to hack through a project of your own.

The workshop is 3 hours, priced at $35.00 (mostly to cover the cost of hardware).

We'll provide the space, the testing hardware, and a fun curriculum. Bring your laptop and join us!

The workshop will include:

• Making an Arduino send text messages and tweets 

• Controlling LEDs on the board with your phone's keypad

• Making the hardware log sensor data and send emails 

• Insert your awesome ideas here

Note that this class is designed for all levels of experience so be sure to include how familiar you are with IoT in your bio--we only expect you to know what an Arduino is and to have a semblance of programming knowledge in general. If you want to pre-meditate what you want your hardware do, check out this library of compatible APIs and play around with ideas. If you still have none, that's okay--we have plenty!
