During our first HTML workshop we’ve learned how to create a basic webpage, slightly style its appearance and embed visual content. This time we will take a step further and add interactive features to our page.
Hyperlinks, buttons, drop-down lists, video and audio content – these are the features that make your webpage attractive, engaging and fun for viewers. Join us this Friday, December 11th, at 4 p.m.
Who is this class for:
This class is ideal for non-technical people who would like to learn new tricks of HTML programming (for example, for your future web design projects).
You don’t need any knowledge of programming software – we will use a simple text editor (such as Notepad).
Basic computer knowledge is required.

What is Arduino? Simply put, it is a small computer that you can program to interacts with the world through electronic sensors, lights, speakers, motors, and even your smart-phone. You have an idea of an interactive object or a device? Arduino circuit board will carry it out for you! It can be used as the brains behind almost any electronics project.
Watch this video to get a glimpse of what you can do with Arduino:
The first workshop of the course, which will take place on Tuesday, November 17, at 4 p.m., will introduce you to the basics of Arduino. Brandon Peart, a tech enthusiast, tinkerer and hobbyist, will teach you how to build and program an interactive device for a “smart home” system. He will explain how to use the hardware (the board, resistors, temperature sensors, etc.) and the software (Arduino IDE‘s programming language).
The first project will be divided into three phases:
We will attach the temperature sensor and learn how to use the serial port.
We will learn how to hook up and take readings of a potentiometer.
We will learn how to use logical operators to turn on and off components of a HVAC system (for this project, we will merely turn on blue, yellow, and red LEDs).
The course is taught in English. Participation is free of charge. All the necessary equipment will be provided – just come and play!
