This is a hands-on lab on how to build a colour changing light strip; you build and program your own custom RGB LED project. Participants learn how to use both software and hardware in the field of computer science. The participants will learn about wiring and programming in Arduino, allowing them to create a custom program that allows them to control an RGB LED project. The lab fosters your creative side, and combines it with technology, to create dynamic art in vibrant colored LEDs. For ages 5 and up to adult; there is something for everyone to learn! Children 12 and under require an adult with them. No previous programming experience necessary.
