This class is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren't entirely sure about how the basics work. You'll put together basic single component electrical circuits, learn about analog and digital, input and output, basic programming concepts, practice very basic Serial communication, and briefly cover basic virtual prototyping.
Concepts covered will include:
• Using a breadboard • Ohm’s Law • Digital and Analog • Input and Output • Arduino programming environment basics • Serial Monitor usage with text, variables and pin states • Creating schematics and PCBs using the educational prototyping tool Fritzing
Students will finish with a good understanding of how to use the Arduino circuit board as a control for their own projects, and a list of next steps to take to develop them.
