It's National Science Week! Come hang with your fave girl gang to learn the basics of creative coding using the amazing Arduino.
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Hunter Valley Grammar School, 42 Norfolk St, Ashtonfield NSW 2323
This is a great opportunity for the young ones to share their interest in coding with that important person in their life. You.
Come along for your first play with the amazing Arduino.
"Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board*."
We will give you a good primer on the programming basics needed to use the Arduino followed by a hands on session where you will work together and tap into your creative side to play around and program something cool.
In this workshop, you will program your own Arduino from scratch. We will cover the following topics:
When: Thursday, August 15, 2019, 5pm - 7pm
Where: Hunter Valley Grammar School, 42 Norfolk St, Ashtonfield NSW 2323
Participants: Beginners - dabblers, fathers/mothers/guardians/aunts bringing their special ones, girls aged 10 to 15 years old (daughters/nieces/etc)
Prerequisites: You don’t need any prior knowledge of programming. The only requirement is that you are curious, keen to participate and excited to learn something new!
Catering: This is one of our shorter sessions so food will not be provided. But we’ll have water available, and you’re welcome to bring a snack!
