Learning the basics of electronics is easier than you may think. Come join us for 2.5-hour workshop where you will learn how to build basic circuits, code simple programs, and experiment with conductive paint.
This class is a project-based class. In the first part of the workshop, you will learn what a microcontroller and its uses are. You will have the chance to work around buttons, sliders, and learn how to control RGB LEDs by changing their colors.
In the second part, we will dig into the creative aspect by experimenting with conductive paint. We will also demonstrate on how to make a wireless connection in the most presentable way.
The purpose of this workshop is to let your creative mind flow and innovate new technology. No experience in electronics and/or programming is needed.
Students will be provided with Basic Electronic Kit for the class with an option to buy it.
This workshop is taught by Darya Dubouskaya, a creative technologist, and director of Brooklyn Research Lab, and Dimple Mirpuri, an artist, and a media technologist freelancer.
