Fall Arduino Workshops
October 5 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT
NEATEC and the Enrichment Resource Center have teamed up to create a new program: STEAM Fusion! This program is designed to assist educators in bringing more STEAM activities to the classroom by assisting in the implementation of technologies presented in a series of professional development workshops.Learn from the pros!
The program begins with a free professional development series created and provided by NEATEC. Educators will enjoy a day of exploring and working with new technologies that can be applied to a wide variety of lesson plans and curriculum.
October 5 – Arduino Part 1 – http://bit.ly/2LtmWsG
This 1-day short course will introduce you to the Arduino world. Arduino is a popular, inexpensive and powerful family of open- source single-board microcontrollers based on an easy-to-use hardware and software. Microcontrollers control everything from our thermostat to our car engines. Attendees will learn how to install and program the Arduino. During the first half-day you will learn the basics of the C-language used to program and monitor the Arduino microcontroller. In the second half of the workshop you will learn how to connect, interact and control basic devices such as LEDs, switches, and some other simple sensors.
October 19 – Part 2 – http://bit.ly/2ES6JcY
This one-day workshop is a continuation of Arduino Part 1 short course, which is a prerequisite for the Part 2. In this part of the course you will learn how to configure, install and inter- act with more advanced sensors and devices. The Arduino microcontroller is the programming tool used to control these sensors. Knowledge of the C-language basics you learned in Part 1 is essential to understand and complete this part. Some of the devices used in Part 2 include temperature, humidity, light, ultrasound, photo resistor and photodiode, and pressure sensors, stepper and dc motors, LCD displays, buzzers, and others.
