Code the Glow

Presented by Georgia State University Perimeter College

The next time your friends stop by, your home will be “lit.” Smart home technologies are right at your fingertips at our Code the Glow event, where you will create your own automated programmed lighting system using Arduino. Arduino is a powerful, yet accessible, programmable microcontroller board that can be used for many automated projects. Georgia State University Professor of Physics, Mathes Dayananda, will teach you how to use Arduino to program an LED light strip. You can then take your Arduino home to start programming your lights in your house!
