What is Arduino?

Arduino is an open source micro controller board about the size of a credit card. When software and various components are connected to the board, a multitude of projects can be done. The Arduino board can be connected to many different kinds of switches, sensors, LEDs, motors, and other parts to perform certain functions. The purpose of using Arduino can be gateway to understanding the workings of circuitry and programming. Additionally, an Arduino can be used for exploratory and prototype pursuits.

Arduino Library Kits Now Available in the Mullins Library

Arduino Kits can be checked out at the Mullins Library Help Desk. They are available on a first-come-first served basis. Only one kit can be checked out per person at a time. Arduino Tech Kits can be checked out for a duration of 7 days with 1 renewal allowed.

Terms of use: 

I. Liability - Users checking out tech kits assume full responsibility for the replacement cost of the item(s) while in possession.

II. Equipment may be removed at times to support class instruction or general projects.

III. Evidence of damage to the tech kit components could result in loss of checkout privileges, fines, or replacement cost of the damaged tech kit components.

IV. Code of Computing Practices -  for using university resources, you accept responsibility for using this technology.
