Programmable Electronics for the Modern Maker. 4-Day Workshop.

MODERN MAKER – PROGRAMMABLE ELECTRONICS WORKSHOP.  JULY 24-27.

Electronics run the world and programming runs electronics. Each device, from the microwave in your house to the phone you hold in your hand, is a series of micro-electronics and sensors designed and programmed to perform tasks. This four-day workshop introduces basic electronic and programming concepts with hands on projects so students get a clear understanding of how to approach a challenge, solve a problem and build a workable device. We also want to have fun building things.

Workshop is for those interested in electronics and programming; those that want to see if they are interested; and those who like pulling things apart to see how they work. Most careers today require a basic knowledge of modern electronics, programming and coding. Designed for students, grades 7-10 with an interest in exploring and trying new things. Teachers have also found this workshop helpful to gain an understanding of electronic principles and programming.

Each participant receives a complete kit featuring an Arduino Nano microcontroller, various sensors, addressable LED strip, and other components to build projects. Students take their electronic kit home.  See the basic project outlines and watch the video from instructor John Soward. http://www.kydataseam.com/learninglibrary?pid=Programmable+Electronics
