Interested in learning electronics? Or do you already know a bit but would like an easy way to prototype your ideas?
Arduino is a simple computer that can sense and control more of the physical world than your normal desktop. For example, an Arduino can be programmed to recognize the sound of a knock at the front door and then unlatch the lock. It can also be used to develop interactive objects, like a light that turns on and off in response to a hand being waved in front of a switch, making it the perfect tool to help watch your technological projects physically come to life!
Arduino boards are based on an easily accessible development environment for writing code and software, making it perfect for projects small and large. Arduino code is based on Java and C++, the core programming languages that have become the foundation for coding. In this course, each student will work hands-on with the Arduino Uno microcontroller board and learn the basics of writing computer code to make their own technology project or idea come alive.
