In this workshop we will let you explore the world of electronics. Beginners can play with analog electronics and build projects with littleBits.
We then take it to the more advanced level of digital electronics where you will learn how a microcontroller is used to program your creations.
The Arduino microcontroller platform will then be used to convert an architectural model of a traditional Jeddah house into a modern smart house using a variety of programmable electronic components. These traditional “smart” houses will in the end form a small Arabian “Smart” village!
This is a single session course. If you sign up for Session B, we ask that you do not sign up for Session A as it is a duplicate session.
