Integrate light, sound, and motion programmatically into art projects. Working remotely with starter kits, we'll learn to use electronic circuits and microcontrollers with sensors, motors, LEDs, and speakers, in projects that create rich and/or interactive experiences. We'll also learn the basics of CAD modeling for 3D printing, creating parts that connect found objects into interesting things. 3D printed objects will be distributed to their designers during and/or after the term. The class will introduce programming in the Arduino ecosystem, but the focus is on building devices for art's sake.

Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
