New workshops for the Science Festival!

Missed out on our recent Arduino or soldering workshops? You’re in luck! In April,
we’re running workshops
as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival
. We have four different
workshops in the Festival programme, each one running twice during the two-week


Getting started with Arduino

Arduino is an easy to use microcontroller platform designed for learning.
This all day no experience required, introductory session for teenagers and
adults will show you how to create your own electronically controlled projects
from simple blinking lights to robots and music generators. All you need to
bring is your laptop as all materials are provided, including your very own
Arduino and kit to take home.

Full-day, running on 5th and 8th of April.

Extreme Soldering: Surface Mount Components

Surface mount soldering isn’t hard! It might look it because of the tiny
components, but we’ll show you it’s really not that scary.
Including your very own kit to build and take home, this session will show you
the tricks and techniques to help you solder on.

Taking Arduino to the Next Level

If you’re an experienced Arduino user, bring your project and your
laptop and let Edinburgh Hacklab help you take your programming to the next
level. This all day session will cover a wealth of advanced Arduino topics:
find out how to update a display without missing any button presses, learn how
to make your project talk to advanced sensors and devices and discover ways to
make your project permanent and avoid a rats’ nest of wires.

Full-day, running on 12th and 15th of April. More
