Event description

Description

INgage and Toronto Public Library present the Digital Literacy Day Arduino Workshop for Teens on Thursday, May 31 from 5pm-8pm. Students attending this program will have an opportunity to explore the future of technology and experience concepts such as programming, Arduino, electronics, and robotics! The target audience for this event are students aged 13 to 18, with or without a STEM background, and a desire to learn new things. You will learn and work together in small groups to program with Arduino to control LEDs, motors, and more. This workshop will consist of an introductory lesson on programming for Arduino followed by a mini-projects competition where your team will successfully complete as many projects as you can in a one hour period for a chance to win prizes.

Arduino is an electronics platform that is able to read inputs and perform many different actions, such as blinking a light, making noise, and even controlling a robot! By the end of the workshop, you will gain general knowledge of the Arduino platform, including how to develop with it, what it can be used for, and more! You shouldn't code on an empty stomach so join us 5pm for check-in with pizza, snacks, and drinks before we jump into the workshop.

Please bring your own laptop. If you are unable to bring a laptop, we will provide one to use for the workshop.

Special thanks to Creatron Inc. for their generous support of this program.
