Have you ever wanted to experiment with computers and interactivity beyond the screen? This workshop was a two-day intensive, hands-on workshop into the realm of building electronic circuits that interface with sensors. We will focus on basic soldering, simple concepts of interactivity using the PIC16F84A microcontroller, MPLAB, and programming in PBASIC. No experience with electronics is necessary!

Participants are asked to bring PC Laptops (if you have them or can borrow them) in order to allow for programming the microcontrollers. Also – if you want to take home your project – you should purchase a prototyping solderless-breadboard from Maplin Electronics or Peats Electronics in Dublin.
