About This Session

Computers connect to other computers over Internet. People connect to other people face to face, via phone, email, social networks etc. using internet . “Things” or objects from everyday life, like water heater, energy meter, and weather station are now connecting to each other and people, computers and the Internet. “Things” act as agents that sense and change the world. Internet of Everything is getting real. In the workshop, we will introduce the basic concepts applied for interfacing the real world to the digital world like - like sensors and controllers, circuits, voltage, current, analog and digital signal. Kids will learn these, while performing hands-on activities using Arduino Uno, an open-source micro-controller, simple components like switches, LEDs etc. Arduino kits will be used for hands-on experience in a shared setting. Kids will learn to upload a “Sketch" to Arduino. Instructor may share some pre-built "things" in the workshop. Suggested Grade Level: 4+ Requirements • Each attendee must have a laptop (Windows or Mac only). • At least 2 GB of free disk space and 4 GB RAM • Pre-install Arduino IDE prior to the workshop.
