Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

Ever wondered how a digital thermometer works? Build one yourself from scratch using an Arduino microcontroller, and learn about the basic electronics and software behind everyday sensors.

The Raspberry Pi mini computer and Arduino microcontrollers have made electronics and programming more accessible for the general public. They have also become a great tool for scientists and engineers to develop their own low cost laboratory equipment. Most modern electronic sensors are built around the same basic principles: convert the analog sensor signal into digital data, process the data and display the result.

Learn how to build a digital thermometer using just a few bits of electronics and an Arduino microntroller. No previous electronics or programming knowledge required.

This event is part of the Community Open Day at the Department of Engineering.

Please book tickets for each workshop participant. Accompanying parents/carers do not need to book a ticket.
