Beginners Electronics and Programming with Arduino Microcontrollers
Deadline to Register- December 19, so kits can be ordered
Computers and smart phones are an important part of our lives, but microcontrollers are even more ubiquitous. Little computers are embedded in everything from cars to toys.
This program will introduce beginners to the world of building small electronic projects that can be controlled by microcontrollers called “Arduino". Basic principles of electronics and programming will be explored as you make lights blink, motors turn, and sense the world around you.
What a great program to take with your child! A parent is required to attend with their child ages 10-12. The program can also be taken by individuals ages 13+.
A take home Arduino Kit is included in the fee.
Laptop is required.
Only children must be registered for ages 10-12. (one kit will be ordered for each child)
