Want to use an Arduino to prototype some electronics? But programming is not really ‘your thing’? Consider Modkit, a Visual Arduino Programming tool! This example is a program which makes a led blink, made with Modkit Micro, the free Modkit tool.
Materials for the workshops given for the minor program HTHT Science 2 Society are available on Canvas. The “Arduino & Programming” workshop which is part of the minor “From Idea to Prototype”, introduces various prototyping techniques, divided into physical prototyping (using Arduino, Lego Mindstorms, LittleBits) and ‘Virtual’ prototyping, like creating App mockups. You can see … Continue reading HTHT Science 2 Society
