The Danbury Library will host a series of hands-on “Introduction to Arduino” workshops on the first Monday of each month, March through June, starting on March 5th. All sessions will be held from 5:00 to 6:30pm in the Library's Technology Computer Lab.
The workshops will be taught by maker Vladimir Mariano who is the founder of CT Robotics Academy and co-founder and president of the Fairfield County Makers’ Guild, an independent makerspace in Norwalk, CT.
Arduinos are a small yet powerful microcontroller that lets you to build projects that sense real world properties such as temperature, illumination, and magnetism. You can light up a light with different colors, make sounds, turn on a motor or operate another electronic device. “Arduinos are a revelation,” explains Aurelio Muraca, Technology Program Coordinator for the Danbury Library. “They are cheap and offer endless possibilities to make our lives a little easier. They are easy to learn with someone teaching the workshops like Vladimir. We are very fortunate to have him coming to Danbury.”
