Recommended Age Group: Grade 4-12
Module 1 is an introduction to programming and building circuits. Learners with no knowledge of programming will navigate through the basics of code writing using basic outputs to allow them to understand how programming languages work. We use real world scenarios and examples throughout this course to allow our learners to think both critically and creatively.
In this module we utilize the Arduino Uno prototyping board. The Arduino is an easy to use platform allowing for a friendly learning environment while being affordable. Arduino provides open-source software and hardware which allows us to give our learners not only an awareness of coding but also the tools to create something different using the skills they learn.
Once a learner finishes this course he/she will be able to program the Arduino as well as build and connect circuits on a breadboard using multiple outputs.
