About Physical Computing
Physical Computing involves the design of interactive objects that can communicate with humans using sensors and actuators controlled by a behaviour implemented as software running inside a microcontroller.

About Arduino (
The Arduino Project was developed out of an educational environment and is therefore great for newcomers to get things working quickly.  It is a Multi Platform environment; it can run on Windows, Macintosh and Linux. It is Based on the Processing programming IDE. It is Open Source hardware and software The hardware is cheap.

The Workshop
With an emphasis on the construction of electronics circuits, from conception to realization, this workshop will apply practical tools, techniques and theory in an ambitious introduction to the Arduino platform.

Through practical exercises participants will be introduced to methods of modular dedicated prototyping, designed for specific functions, which are easily compatible with Arduino, and robust enough to withstand constant use.
