  Description The Arduino is an open-source microcontroller system that is relatively easy to use in a broad range of situations. In this workshop we will be building and programming a small self-contained Arduino "datalogger" that can record time-stamped analog data and then report that data to a separate computer for analysis at a later time. Participants will gain their own datalogger and the software needed to customize and extend its capabilities, as well as all schematics, sources, software, and a basic skill-set for getting started with using Arduino microcontrollers as lab tools. Participants must bring a laptop. Prior experience in soldering and/or computer programming will be helpful, but is not required.
