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. It is one of the most popular teaching tools used teach circuitry, robotics, and programming an embedded controller.  


Intro to Arduino


The introductory class is intended for 3rd-8th graders who may be interested in learning about basic circuitry and how electronics control LED's, robots, and engineering functions.


Students will learn:


  • Arduino programming, it's basic concepts, structures, and keywords

  • how to build simple circuits and implement simple functions using a breadboard with wires and sensors

  • how to write simple Arduino sketches that can get sensor reading, make LEDs blink, write text on an LCD screen, read the position of a potentiometer and other sensors


Intermediate/Advance Arduino


This class builds on the intro class and is intended for students who want to learn how to prototype their own ideas and innovations and those who may want to join a robotics, solar car, or science fair team in high school or college.  


Students will learn:


  • how to use breadboards to make projects more permanent

  • analog and digital inputs and outputs such as distance, temperature, or sound

  • how to make the Arduino can communicate with other devices

  • how to write, compile/ upload sketches, and install libraries to control a robot
