Build Your Own Arduino

Build Your Own Arduino Maker Group

In this Maker Group we’ll build an Arduino from scratch:

  • learn some Arduino programming basics
  • create schematics and generate BOMs
  • use a breadboard to build Arduino
  • solder a breakout board and flash your Arduino

Time & Costs

This Maker Group will meet once a week for 5 sessions. You may need to put in a few more hours each week to ensure you have completed each step

Digi-Key sponsored this Maker Group so all the components are provided.
