Learn to solder and discover programmable electronics! Participants will discover basic electronics components and learn how to program a microcontroller (Pi Pico) using CircuitPython! We’ll create LED light effects and investigate making a fake keyboard or mouse! You will learn how to solder and create your own set of Bluetooth speakers- that you will get to keep and take home!
Participants will get to keep the Pi Pico they use, a breadboard, and a selection of electronic components!
