The next meeting..

Thursday, March 18, 2021 – 7 for 7:30pm

Topic: Using an “Arduino” to build and program your invention.

Presenter: Stewart Jones

Have you ever wanted to build and program your own robot? Or perhaps a weather station?
What about a DIY home security system? Segway? 3D printer? Washing machine (probably not)?

If you want to build something electrical which needs some level of intelligence, you’ll need a microcontroller.
A microcontroller is a small chip with inputs, outputs and a memory.
It’s as simple as connecting your electrical components and telling the microcontroller what it needs to do.

This presentation will focus on the Arduino microcontroller which was invented in 2005.
There are now thousands of microcontrollers available, the cheapest starts at $5 (delivered).
