Event Details

Middle school students learn how they can use computers to interact with the physical world.  From automatically turning on and off lights to detecting temperature changes students will create several projects using the Arduino prototyping kit that will demonstrate the basics of electronics programming.  By the end of class students will understand how many of the everyday things we encounter are programmable and think of new ways to program the world around them.

Objectives (what will students be able to do after class):

  • Describe what sensors are and tools that use them
  • Describe a circuit, volt, resistors and switches
  • Describe a microcontroller
  • Create a LED prototype (with and without a bread board)
  • Create a LED/push button prototype
  • Create a LED/temp sensor prototype

 Goals (what will students learn after class):

  • Students will learn how to build a basic electronic prototype using a sensor
  • Students will learn how sensors are programmed and used in the real world
  • Students will learn to work with others, as part of a team, to build functioning electronic prototypes

Space is limted, so register your student now!!
