Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 1 & 2, 2016session
Introduction to Arduino - Part 1
In this two part hands on workshop kids will be introduced to open source micro-controller Arduino and some basic concepts like circuits.
About This Session
In this hands-on 2 part workshop we will introduce the basic concepts applied for connecting “things” in the real world to the digital world, using Arduino Uno, an open-source micro-controller. This is a hands-on workshop. Kids will “make” couple of circuits and learn basic concepts from physics like electricity, voltage, current, resistance. They will get to know sensors and actuators. They will also learn how to write software for Arduino, upload it to Arduino and make it control a circuit (sensors/actuators) connected to it. 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 https://www.arduino.cc/en/main/software Detailed instructions for Windows 8: bit.ly/ARDUINO-WINDOWS81
