Microcontroller Classes

Published on Feb 2, 2017

A series of free spring classes at ACTC will help participants learn to use microcontrollers to complete a variety of tasks.  The eight classes include Arduino and Raspberry Pi programming languages, a basic soldering class, an internet overview and a project demonstration.

All classes will be held on a Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in ACTC’s College Drive Campus Drive Library.

Three classes will help participants use Arduino programming language and software: Intro to Arduino on Feb. 18, Arduino Programming on March 4 and Arduino Sensors on March 18.

Raspberry Pi classes are Raspberry Pi Introduction on April 15 on Raspberry Pi Programming on April 29

A Basic Soldering class on April 1 will help participants with the construction of electronic devices. 

An Internet of Things class on May 18 will cover connecting a microcontroller to the internet so that makers can communicate with their devices from a web browser or cell phone. 

The final class on May 27 will be a demonstration of projects constructed though use of techniques learned in the class series.

The classes are provided through a $50,000 USDA grant for “Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurial Training” projects.   To sign up for any or all classes, email as_workforce@kctcs.edu or call 606-326-2072. For class details, email: mark.riggs@kctcs.edu.
