The workshop will focus on different kinds of motors, namely Servos, Dc and Steppers, which you can connect with the Arduino open source platform using a Shield that allows you to control several motors at the same time. Basic knowledge in electronics and Arduino might be helpful but not required.

– Motor shield components: soldering and connecting to Arduino.
– Understanding how motors work: Servos, DC, Steppers (uni and bipolar) motors.
– Powering and controling DC motors.
– Ideas for a project?
