Arduinos are a fantastic tool for building digital devices. They can be used to make everything from automatic watering systems, to self-driving cars, to robots!

They are cheap, easy to use, and commonplace in the STEM industry, so they’re ideal for use in education. The problem is, many teachers don’t know where to start.

In this hands-on session, participants will work through a series of short tutorials to learn how to program an Arduino to achieve simple but practical goals.

Participants will need access to a laptop with a standard USB port in order to connect and program the provided Arduino board.
