Arduino Workshops: Motor Projects - Use code to control both hobby and servo motors.
Interested in coding and electronics but don't know where to start? Arduino microcontroller boards can be easily programmed using a variant of the c programming language. They receive inputs from a variety of switches or sensors to control lights, motors or other outputs. Arduino projects can be as simple as a light blinking on and off or as complex as a robot or smart thermostat. During these workshops, individuals can write and compile code to bring a variety of projects to life using the arduino uno and various electronic components.
