Abstract:

This workshop is only for females.

The purpose of this workshop is to enable the audience to create interactive electronic objects using Arduino.

The speakers will share their expenses in using Arduino to inspire females to use Arduino for innovation and design.

The workshop will cover the following topics:

  • Arduino from A to Z, kinds, properties and characteristics of some the sensors and motors, introduction to robotics and programing.

These topics will be described through few simple experiments so, in the end of the workshop the trainees will be able to make a robot.

Having such experience will help spread the knowledge and  expand the females’ involvement in engineering and technology in the Gulf Region.
