Arduino Club is an open, drop-in session focused on learning to program Arduinos. Each week, we’ll try a different project from the Arduino Projects Book, but feel free to bring your own projects as well. In other words, bring your current projects or drop in and try for the first time.


Everyone interested is welcome. You do not need your own Arduino, there are extras in the space. Bring a laptop if you’ve got one or borrow a newer Mac or Dell laptop from the Inforum (which have the Arduino software installed). For more information, please email
