Sensing Sound with Arduinos
Date: Wednesday, April 4, 2018
Time: 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Location: Marston Science Library, Made@UF
Arduino is an open source microcontroller platform for building electronics projects. Combining digital and physical computing, programmable Arduino circuit boards use sensors and a simple command line interface to create interactive devices. In this workshop, we will focus on sound. Users will learn Arduino basics and how to create and play music using piezo tones and photocell pseudo-theremins. Please download the Arduino software here and come ready to Sense with Sound!
Shannon Butts is a doctoral candidate at the University of Florida working with emerging technologies such as Arduino microcontrollers, 3D printing, and augmented reality. Her research explores how mobile technologies are changing public discourse and community writing practices. Shannon has been leading workshops with Marston Science Library for the past three years and has co-authored the UF Library Guide to Arduinos and the Guide to Augmented Reality. She currently makes, writes, and programs with Made@UF and the Trace Innovation Initiative.
Emily Brooks is a PhD candidate in the English department at the University of Florida. She is a "makeademic" and loves to tinker with technology. She has been leading Arduino workshops since Spring 2015, has co-authored the UF Library Guide to Arduinos, and has created Arduino video tutorials for Marston Science Library's YouTube channel.
