In this workshop, participants will be introduced to biosensing. They will learn how to control lights by  programming with Arduino software and the Trinket microcontroller, and using a pulse sensor to synchronize the LEDs with the heartbeat. Individually addressable LEDs have a tiny microcontroller on each of the LEDs that allow each one to light up with a unique color and brightness. A pulse sensor is a plug-and-play heart-rate sensor that uses live heart rate data. This workshop is open to members and non members.
