Together with several students (Drake Brunner, Patrick, Cutno, Patryk Giza, and Kwangju Kim) from the Miami University, Dr. Chi-Hao Cheng will demonstrate programming and some of the capabilities of the Arduino micro controller board https://www.arduino.cc/.  Then they will deliver hands-on instruction following a modified lesson plan from MU.

Cincinnati IEEE will provide a limited number of Arduino Uno boards for members to use, so please bring your PC laptop to the meeting even if you don’t have an Arduino. You are encouraged to install the Arduino software (available at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software) to your computer before the meeting.  If you wish to purchase your own Arduino Uno we recommend http://store-usa.arduino.cc/products/a000066, or http://store-usa.arduino.cc/products/a000066, or https://www.adafruit.com/category/17 .
