Solder Your Own Arduino – Oct 1st @ 1pm – 4pm

//

(Yours won’t look quite like this…)

What better way is there to start your journey into electronics than to solder your own Arduino?
This workshop will teach you how to identify and solder through-hole components, a very helpful skill, especially when working with Arduino shields.

You do not need to bring anything other than yourself! Solder, soldering irons, components, etc. are all provided by LVL1. Plus, you get to keep the Arduino you soldered together!

Not sure what an Arduino can do? Check out our Arduino 101 Workshop on September 17th.

**CANCELLED** Arduino 101 Workshop – September 17 @ 12PM – 4PM

//

Learn the basics of Arduino and how to leverage this embedded platform for your next electronics project. We’ll cover how to control LEDs, motors, and communicate with a variety of sensors using the Arduino IDE. We’ll also cover general electronics topics including voltage and current and basic components like resistors and capacitors. We’ll provide the Arduino and other electrical components, but you cannot take them home with you. If you want a set, I’ll make recommendations at the workshop.

What you need to do before the workshop:

1. Load your laptop with the latest Arduino IDE installed (https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software) and bring it with you

2. Brush up on C or other programming languages, just enough to be familiar with the big ideas (e.g. variables, loops, if-statements).

3. Get excited, you’re about to learn some really awesome stuff 🙂

Start Sewing! An Intro for Beginners Workshop – Sep 21 @ 7PM

start-sewing

This workshop will cover the basics of sewing, following a theoretical garment from start to finish. Get introduced to a sewing machine, how to read a pattern, what tools that can make construction easier, and fabrics to consider. With these basics down, you’ll be ready to tackle whatever sewing project you can dream up. You don’t need to bring anything but notetaking materials (optional, as presentation will be available afterwards) and an enthusiasm to get started! Get your ticket today!
