We would like to invite anyone interested in physical computing – people from all ages and all levels of expertise – to come and spend the day with us. The day will consist of a series of FREE Arduino taster workshops for absolute beginners in the morning and a showcase of interesting interactive Arduino projects by artists, techies and enthusiasts in the afternoon.

We will work with components such as LEDs, potentiometers, Piezos and more! For the kids workshop we’ll combine Arduino with Scratch to show children how these two platforms can communicate with each other. For the workshops for young people and adults we will purely be using the Arduino environment, but will also be demonstrating how you can use it on your Raspberry Pi! All workshops are FREE. For more details about the workshops and how to sign up, please visit the Codasign webpage. ABOUT THE SHOWCASE – SUBMIT YOUR WORK! If you have an Arduino project you would like to show and discuss, we would like to invite you to participate in our Arduino Showcase. This is an opportunity to share your work and hear about what others are doing, to meet people, to be inspired, and, mainly, to have a good time. If this sounds like something you would like to do, please fill in this form. We aim for this to be a friendly and informal event, where visitors can wander around, get ideas, ask questions and play with the projects being showcased.
