Light and Motion

Light & Motion

 

workshop & design jam

Build a motion activated flashlight, a simple robot or a reactive painting. Find out how to add interactive lighting and motion to your next project.

This workshop will give you a set of tools for building simple interactive objects using RGB LEDs and servo motors. We'll teach you to the basics of building circuits and coding, introducing you to the world of arduino and open source electronics.

This event is an introductory project-based workshop focused on teaching the basics of interactive arduino projects. After this workshop, you'll be able to program LEDs to react to motion and distance.

 

Stay tuned for our next workshop

KITS

We've put together kits containing all the components you'll need to add interactivity to your next project.

Each kit includes:

  1. 1 Arduino UNO R3
  2. 1 Ultrasonic sensor
  3. 1 Neopixel LED Ring or strip
  4. 1 Standard servo motor
  5. 1 Breadboard
  6. 7 M-F jumper wires
  7. 6 M-M jumper wires

All of these components can be found in our Light and Motion Kits or purchased separately at your local electronics shop.
