2017 Summer Arduino Camp
- Description: This camp is designed for 5th - 8th graders. The workshop will not only teach Parallel Circuits, Current, Electrons, Ground, Resistors, LED, but also introduce Arduino from Output Pins, Ground, Power, Programming, Functions, Parameters, INPUT, OUTPUT. Students will use Arduino boards, sensors and Blockly to build applications such as:
- Controlled plant watering while on vacation
- Show off LED text on bike wheel
- Program Air Condition depending on Temperature and humidity conditions
- Design a security alarm system by using ultrasound distance sensor and sound
alarm with Piezo speaker
- Design Arduino controlled smart vehicle to maneuver around obstacle
By using IDE programming interface, students can learn and practice their coding skills. While the
Arduino kits and Laptop will be provided for campers to use, students can purchase their own
Arduino kit to practice after the workshop.
Note: Actual project selection depends on the level of campers and the level of programming difficulty
of each project.
