Tartu Loomemajanduskeskus
Kalevi 17, Tartu
Number of participants: 15 (in one workshop)

This year's love film festival Tartuff is dedicated to science, and in this workshop we will go back in time to the pre-film animation world and build a device with moving pictures.
There is introduced the history of animation and the basics of creating animation, learned how to build a device prototype and written a simple program to control the device.

In the workshop, we go back to the pre-film animation world and build a device of animation with moving pictures. The zoetrope is one of many pre-film animation devices that creates the illusion of movement. This illusion arises from moving the drawn frames in the image drum. In the workshop, everyone can draw pictures based on their imaginary and make them move in a drum using the motor and Arduino Uno microcontroller.

If possible, take your computer with you to write program code. There are also some computers in workshop.

The workshop will be a joint project of Digipurk and Robotex and will be conducted by Ringa Rooteman and Ülari Ainjärv. Ringa has been a software developer for over 20 years and has organized trainings for over 5 years. She has a robotics and programming hobby club at school and kindergarten, and teaches robotics and programming at school. Ülari has been a software developer for over 20 years and has concucted trainings for over 10 years. Ülari organizes various courses and workshops on robotics and programming for both children and adults.

The fee for participating in the workshop is 5 euros (can be paid immediately in cash or by card payment).
You can take the animation device with you (it's not include electronic components).
If desired, a set of electronic components can be purchased for 45 euros (includes Arduino Uno microcontroller, breadboard, servo motor, potentiometer, breadboard wires, USB cable).

Quick programming course for beginners in autumn 2021

Do you want to get a quick basic knowledge of programming? 🤓

Quick programming course for beginners (Java/Python) (82 ac h).

The training teaches programming independently in Java or Python and creates an understanding of the software development process and tools.

The course is intended primarily for those who don’t have previous or have low exposure to programming but would like to start more seriously with it. Everyone else who would like to take a look at the secret world of programmers and thereby understand the nuances of software creation is also welcome. Such as product managers, key users, testers. The course does not require prior knowledge of software development.

In the case of this course, a training grant can be applied for the employer. The state supports companies to develop the knowledge and skills of employees with up to 2,500 euros per employee! 😊

Arduino day 27.03.2021

During this year's World Arduino Day, we will show you how to make a device that will help you follow the 2 + 2 rule. 

The workshop is free for everyone and takes place over the web. To participate, send a letter to We will send a transfer link to all registrants before the event.

The workshop will take place on March 27, 2021 at 13:00-14:30.

If you also want to build a device for yourself, you can order a set assembled for that day from our e-shop (number of sets is limited).

We will also add information about the workshop to Facebook.

The book “Inspired” got Sille :)

Some time ago, we shouted that we were drawing a book between buyers, and now the lottery wheel has spun.
Accompanied by drumming, we congratulate the winner, who is 5 or the inventor Sille 🙂

Dear inventor!

Buy cool gadgets to invent Digipurgi store and you can win the book “INSPIRED - How to create tech products customers love”. This book will inspire you on how to build great products.

We drew a lucky inventor on February 1, 2021.
