Arduino Lock Box Workshop

Student creates a theft deterrent lock box with an Arduino


Codasign and the British Museum collaborated to build a workshop. The workshop was designed with the Citi-Money Gallery. The focus was on security.

The workshop was divided into four sections. At the start, we took them to the exhibit and discussed the evolution of security. The exhibition ranges from lock boxes to modern digital devices. Next, I took the students through the basics of programming Arduino with LEDs and servo motor. It gets fun when we show them how to build origami paper boxes. The final part of the workshop, the attendees experiment with programming and building to create boxes that open and close.
