Microcontrollers for Students

Project Period: Spring 2013

Target Audience: Middle and High School Students

Funding Source:  ITTIP Funded

Funding Amount: N/A

The ITTIP is excited to present a wonderful opportunity for middle and high school students in SVRTC school divisions. ITTIP is sponsoring the SparkFun experts to come to Longwood and teach local students about Arduino!
Go from blinking an LED to virtual prototyping in seven hours and still have time to eat lunch! This class is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren’t entirely sure about how the basics work. It’s easier than you think! During the class we will put together basic single component electrical circuits, learn about analog and digital, input and output, basic programming concepts, practice very basic Serial communication, and briefly cover basic virtual prototyping. Students will create  simple circuits highlighting analog and digital forms of input and output. Get started with the Arduino programming environment, briefly discuss programming and virtual prototyping. Depending on class interest, Arduino-related educational techniques may be discussed as well.
