Fun with the Arduino: Workshop


The Arduino lets us add intelligence to everyday objects or create new, never-imagined smart-artifacts. It gives us power by applying small computer programs to respond to people and our environment.

We’ll build several ‘mini-projects’ (including building a DIY LED torch, buzzing and humming cheesy tunes and using light- and touch-responsive sensors) which let you get familiar with electronics and programming in digestible pieces.

This workshop is intended for people who are computer literate, but who have never programmed before.

test This workshop is presented in collaboration with Black Country Atelier, specialising in Digital Making Classes. Visit their website to find out more.


Admission to this workshop is £15 per person and this includes free entry to The National Museum of Computing on the day of the workshop.

If you are coming only to TNMOC, there is no need to pay the Bletchley Park Trust entrance fee (the Bletchley Park Trust is a separate organisation). Please come to the Bletchley Park main gate and indicate to the gate staff that your intention is to visit TNMoC only and you will be directed to the museum in Block H.
