Programming with microcontrollers and paper-based circuits
Saturday, July 7, 2012, 1 – 6PM
In this workshop, we’ll combine electronics and programming with papercraft. We’ll use conductive silver ink, microcontrollers, and LED lights to make circuits on paper cutouts. We’ll also write our own programs to control the behavior of our circuits. We will discuss technology and its connection to artistic and craft practice.
