Create with circuits and Arduino - the foundation of smart devices

We are surrounded by electronics - smartphones, computers, TVs, robots, and more! While lots of students have learned to code, few have had the opportunity to build the physical system which opens up a brand new world. In this class, we introduce students to circuit and Arduino, one of the most popular single-board devices. The class uses an Arduino simulator and does not require a physical device. However, if you prefer, Arduino can be purchased online. The same code will work on the device without any changes. We start with the basics of electronics. Students will learn how to create circuits, use resistors, and get introduced to Ohm's law, while building a series of cool projects and experiments. We will also code Arduino to start building smart devices that can sense their environment and respond accordingly.

Prerequisites: Scratch coding experience and familiarity with basic coding blocks are strongly recommended

Requirements: Device with Zoom, a web browser, and internet connectivity
