About the workshop
This hands-on workshop features the M5StickC prototyping device from M5Stack. The “stick” is a compact Arduino programmable device that contains its own screen, battery power, and extendable sensors. It also provides full Bluetooth and wifi capability. Workshop students will learn the basics of programming the stick to add interactive display, light, motion, sound, and connectivity to their projects and prototypes. Each student in the workshop will receive a M5StickC kit to work with and take home. Students should bring a laptop with a USB type A port and are encouraged to install the current Arduino IDE software before attending.
No previous experience is necessary for this workshop.
