Created By: Brandon Roots

This workshop is about light; the science of visible light, a brief history of its practical and creative uses, and an examination of the pervasive LED.

Together we will try live demonstrations to illustrate the physics of color and light. Demonstrations will involve the FastLED library for Arduino with code examples that you are encouraged to follow along!

Recommended materials include: - An Arduino Module - USB Cable for Arduino - Bread board and wire - Small strip of WS2812 LEDs (10 ideal, longer will require external power supply) - Soldering iron and solder - Computer with Arduino IDE - White paper, scissors and tape (for diffusion)
