  • learn basic electronics skills while building a small, functional circuit
  • write code that:
    • explores the inputs and outputs offered by the Arduino platform
    • reads a dimmer
    • controls the color of an RGB LED
    • sends messages to your laptop for status and debugging purposes
  • meet interesting and like-minded people who are passionate about technology and the DIY ethic
