Interacting with Addressable LEDs

Learn how to program and control Addressable LEDs with code! Leon Lu will facilitate an exploration into creating interactive light systems based on inputs from sensors and outputs through light. 

This two-part workshop will introduce you to working with addressable LEDs, as well as an exploration into creating interactive projects using NeoPixels. Leon Lu will teach you how to program and control NeoPixel LEDs using an Arduino micro-controller and the Arduino IDE. In addition to learning how to control NeoPixel LEDs with code, you will also be introduced to making interactive things by taking inputs from sensors and visualizing that information through NeoPixel LEDs.
