This past Saturday, July 25th, Hack Pittsburgh held the second run of the “Introduction to Arduino” Class, the first class to actually be taught at the Hack Pittsburgh space!
Matt Stultz, with a bit of backup from Jon Speicher, Marty McGuire, and the Solder Cam led a class of 7 students in constructing and testing out their first Arduino-compatible electronics platform, the Freeduino!
As a first-time soldering project, the Freeduino is both very challenging and very rewarding. Participants with previous soldering experience were able to get things up and running easily, but even our youngest first-timers, 11 and 9 years old, respectively, were able to get their boards up and happily blinking away!
All-in-all, it was a pretty huge success! We’re very grateful and happy for everyone who participated, and we hope to see everyone again, soon!
