A free (no cost), unstructured session for playing with electronics and helping and learning from others. You might learn:

  • how electrical circuits work
  • using a breadboard
  • using sensors
  • using motors
  • using LEDs (light-emitting diodes)
  • writing code to read inputs and create output (lights, sound, motor movement)
  • how to use Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Circuit Playground Express, or micro_bit
  • programming a Cutebot (shown below)
    • Picture of Cutebot


Fully vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2, or mask wearing:

Saturday, July 24, from 1–4:30. Come and go whenever you like.


A portable computer, if you have one.

Any of these you might want to work on:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Circuit Playground Express
  • micro:bit
  • Arduino
  • Sensors
  • Motors
  • Breadboards, wires, etc.

If you don’t have any gear, I have lots of Circuit Playground Express devices you can use while you’re here, and you can probably get some time with the Cutebot.

Parents/Care Givers

As space permits, you’re welcome to remain and observe.


If you think it’s likely you’ll come, please let Dave know beforehand, otherwise just drop by.
