In this class we will go over what a microcontroller is and specifically look at how to use the Arduino microcontroller. We will wire up an Arduino to a breadboarded circuit and learn how to write code for the Arduino to control the circuit. We will also be looking at some of these electrical components in more detail and learn how to read a components data sheet to better understand the voltage and current that it can handle.
