This is your chance to get hands-on for one week of solid Arduino projects. First of all...What is a Arduino board? For that matter, what is Arduino?How does a Arduino work?
Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.
The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics, and for good reason. Unlike most previous programmable circuit boards, the Arduino does not need a separate piece of hardware (called a programmer) in order to load new code onto the board – you can simply use a USB cable. Additionally, the Arduino IDE uses a simplified version of C++, making it easier to learn to program. In this class, you get to use programming to make a project come to life. The projects will be simple but the learning will be complex.
Each student will take home a project incorporating an Arduino board and materials of their choosing.
