Event Details

Piedmont K-12 students (& parents) are invited to the Piedmont Makerspace "Arduino Day!" on Saturday 3/28 12-3pm.  This event is part of global Arduino Day - a worldwide event bringing together Arduino people and projects.

We will do an Open Make building circuits to blink an LED, respond to light or temperature, and more.  Arduino is perfect for younger or older students -- if you can do the exercises on, you can code Arduino!  Make sure you bring a Chromebook or laptop to the event so you write code to make an Arduino control the world around you!  We will have a limited quantity of Arduino kits available to purchase in advance so you can take one home.  

For the upcoming Science Fairs and Mini Maker Faire, Science teachers Mrs. Broback from Beach, Mr. Taylor from Havens, and Ms. Tokunaga from Wildwood along with parent mentors will be on hand to help brainstorm and prototype ideas, and answer questions.

We also have Piedmont Makers T-Shirts for sale (American Apparel Tri-Blend design) so please consider a donation to help fund S.T.E.A.M. education in Piedmont and get a T-Shirt!

What is Arduino?  Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects.  Arduino lets you code the physical world.

What's a Makerspace?  A new community space to promote S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math + Design) education for Piedmont students.  A Makerspace is project-driven: for Class, for Science Fair, for the Piedmont Mini Maker Faire, or for fun!  A Makerspace is staffed with expert mentors - either teachers, parents, or high school students.

The event is sponsored by Piedmont Makers -- an Associated Parent Clubs of Piedmont sponsored group dedicated to Promote & Inspire K-12 STEAM education in Piedmont Unified School District.
