What do I need in order to participate in the course?
You will need a stable internet connection, and a computer with a keyboard to use the program. Programming is most easily done on a keyboard, so we do not recommend using devices such as iPads, tablets, or phones.
You will also receive a SparkFun project building kit in the mail from us. We will provide everything for the projects that require this equipment. However, it may be handy to have items such as extra batteries and art supplies (e.g., colored pencils) handy.
