Electronics

In the last 10 years, the rise of easy-to-program microcontrollers such as Arduino has led to an explosion of interactive electronics, also known as "physical computing."

Using Arduino as a starting point, computer programmers, engineers, artists and hackers are coming together to imagine new solutions, bridging the virtual and the real. 

In the Maker Hub, we'll be using Arduinos, Raspberry Pis (a small cheap linux computer), vintage electronics, and a wide variety of sensors, motors, leds, and other components to prototype ideas from domains as diverse as medicine, sports, robotics, activism, and games. 

These tools are easier to learn than you might think, and our staff stands ready to help to get on board with electronics!

Check out our scheduled Workshops for hands-on learning opportunities with our equipment.
