Building a Theremin using an Arduino for all of $40

We had an excellent workshop in May on the Arduino Uno and used it to build a Theremin !!  Our very own Sushma Rao (represented CodeChix at Grace Hopper 2014 for her OpenCL talk with Sthiti Deka) organized this event.  And it was a crowd pleaser for sure.  We had many requests for encores.

We sold-out all tickets, prepared all the hardware, software and Smitha Pisupati instructed students ranging from experienced software and hardware engineers to complete newbies to 10-year olds who attended the workshop.

And everyone had a functional Theremin by the end of the 3.5 hour workshop !
