Recently we put together a free microcontroller workshop for our community.
Everyone got an Nano, breadboard, and some parts they could take home. We started with a very brief presentation and worksheet, then focused on getting everyone to build a functioning basic circuit, and then let people play from there with our help!
The focus was on showing this work is not that hard, get people to start building things fast, and inspiring people to explore it more.
The lovely women at Ada Academy were kind enough to let us use their space for the workshop.
