Arduino Programmin For Beginners


Arduino is an open source programmable circuit board that can be integrated into a wide variety of makerspace projects both simple and complex.  This board contains a microcontroller which is able to be programmed to sense and control objects in the physical world.   By responding to sensors and inputs, the Arduino is able to interact with a large array of outputs such as LEDs, motors and displays.  Because of it’s flexibility and low cost, Arduino has become a very popular choice for makers and maker-spaces looking to create interactive hardware projects.

Arduino was introduced back in 2005 in Italy by Massimo Banzi as a way for non-engineers to have access to a low cost, simple tool for creating hardware projects.  Since the board is open-source, it is released under a Creative Commons license which allows anyone to produce their own board.


Arduino programming is a great way for beginners to get started with programming and electronics. Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on simple microcontroller boards and a development environment that makes it easy to write, upload, and run code on the boards.

Here are some basic steps to get started with Arduino programming:

  1. Install the Arduino software on your computer. This software, called the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment), is available for free from the Arduino website.
  2. Connect your Arduino board to your computer via USB.
  3. Open the Arduino IDE and select the correct board and serial port from the “Tools” menu.
  4. Write your code using the Arduino language, which is a simplified version of C++.
  5. Once you have written your code, upload it to the board using the “Upload” button in the IDE.
  6. Once the code is uploaded, you can see the results on the board or the serial monitor.
