How to learn how to use Arduino?

My son mentioned that he wanted to use Arduino (a microcontroller, or in the words of the Arduino homepage, “an open-source electronic prototyping platform.”) for his science fair project. Of course, that means I will be trying to figure it out as well, and I know nothing about it. What’s the best way to develop a basic knowledge of working with Arduino?


You might want to check out Arduino at Amazon.com. There's quite a bit of information there.


There is a book, “Getting Started with Ardruino” that you might find useful. You can get if through Amazon (like pretty much everything else including Ardruinos). www.ardruino.cc also has a lot of information that can help you get started. Here is a website that has some pretty killer projects that might give you some inspiration as well.
