Event description
A beginner's introduction to Arduino micro-controllers as tools for STEM classrooms.

About this event

Arduino micro-controller technology provides the ability to fully customize science demonstration and data collection tools in a very affordable way.

In the workshop, participants will....

  • learn about microcontrollers and programming fundamentals
  • be introduced to Arduino and sensor hardware
  • be introduced to Arduino programming language
  • build a fully functioning data logger
  • discuss applications for a variety of classroom contexts
  • be empowered with this basic understanding to launch further investigations & projects with their students

The workshop is specifically designed for beginners, no experience necessary. Our learning will be particularly useful for teachers in Biology, Physics, Programming / Computers, Technology, Electronics and "STEM" content areas, among others. This work will also provide a very good foundation for teachers involved in the Square One Innovative Vehicle Design Challenges.

We'll meet virtually in four 2-hour sessions, spread over a two weeks span.

  • Tues 10/13/2020, 4-6 pm
  • Thur 10/15/2020, 4-6 pm
  • Tues 10/20/2020, 4-6 pm
  • Thur 10/22/2020, 4-6 pm

Registered participants will receive:

  • SCECHs (we'll cover the cost)
  • Data-logger hardware, hard copy resources, and access to digital resources valued over $100
  • Access to ongoing technical support from Square One

Participants must have a windows or mac laptop with the Arduino IDE installed, and adequate internet access for zoom conferencing.

Organizer Square One Education Network

Organizer of Introduction to Arduino Workshop

For over 25 years, the Square One Education Network, a 501c3 non-profit organization, has been providing high quality STEM learning opportunities to teachers and students across Michigan, and beyond.  Our work is primarily focused on:

 

  • Organizing and hosting a “Signature Series” of Innovative Vehicle Design (IVD) Challenges, with competitions, for students in grades 6-12, from all demographics
  • Providing teacher professional development to build teacher capacity for supporting students in these design challenges and
  • Providing opportunities for teachers and students to interface with Industry professionals, expanding STEM career awareness. 

 

Square One programs are specifically designed to provide highly engaging, authentic, relevant, project-based learning opportunities (our IVD Challenges) that supplement existing curricula, and help teachers address the NGSS Engineering Practices.
