Arduino Day in Berkeley – Call for Volunteers

Zoe RomanoMarch 15th, 2016

Join us for the Arduino Day event organized by our team at the Jacobs Institute on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley with the participation of Massimo Banzi, David Mellis and Tom Igoe.

We are seeking volunteers to assist us during the event. We are going to have free workshops, talks by the founders, and art and tech displays.

We are looking for volunteer assistance during the event e.g. staffing information tables and displays, bringing a project to demo, helping during workshops, picking up coffee & lunch, and providing technical assistance. This is not a paid gig, but to show our appreciation that you are spending your time with us, Arduino has prepared a small gift for you.

We welcome all levels of skills and curiosity. More important than your technical skills are your people skills. Please provide us with basic information about yourself and your interests. Use the appropriate form depending on whether you have volunteered with us in the past:

First time volunteers? Please fill out this form. If you have volunteered for Arduino before, please contact us at arduinovolunteer [at]

We also have two paid positions: one for a two-person video camera crew and the other for a photographer. To apply, please fill out this form.

    This looks SO fun! I would volunteer, but I’m not 100% sure I can make it, as I’m living out of the area. I would love to see some of the creative things people are doing with Arduino, and learn from people rather than just trying to learn it all on my own online 🙂 Keep up the great work guys!

    I am new to Arduino. can someone tell me if its a free event open to everyone or do I need to register to attend. Thank You.

    You need to put out an update on what going on. I not trying to be a jerk about this but I am trying to get a group together to attend and I don’t know where to park or if I need to register. Its a 300 mile round trip for us to attend and I would like to make plans for the day.
