Learn Arduino at the Danbury Library

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.”

The program is open to teens and adults and is free of charge. Due to limited seating, registration is required.
