This Arduino electronics course will introduce students in grade 6 and above to learn STEM concepts building and programming their simple electronics projects blinking and floating LEDs, buzzers, alarms, switches and more.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.
Next level of this course students will be programming the Arduino Robotics platform be it a Remote Controlled smart car or a Robotic Arm
