Last 29th of March 2014, we celebrated in ISCTE-IUL the Arduino Day.
The Arduino Day was a universal celebration of the birthday of Arduino, with a lot of events, of different types, worldwide.
There were only 4 events (including ours) for this celebration in Portugal,. One workshop in a Secundary school (Agrupamento de Escolas Júlio Dantas), some workshops and presentations in I.P. Tomar, and Show and teel in a professional school (CINEL).
In ISCTE-IUL we had done 4 presentations:
