Environment Maker Challenge: Day 4 with Oli Howson

It was brilliant Arduino masterclass today from Oli Howson, the fourth session in our SERAS Environment Making Challenge. Many thanks again for everyone who joined in and for all your great comments in the chat. We all learned loads about how to use Arduinos and really enjoyed tinkering with them on an emulator. 

Thanks as well Oli for your advice on connectivity and the importance of choosing the right form of connectivity in your solution. Best of all, people got to actually make something, even if it was just online! Lights were flashing on virtual Arduino boards. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you for David Pride’s Micro:bit masterclass tomorrow!

Oli’s session is now available on YouTube here, and at the bottom of this post.
