An Arduino, according to their official website, is an “open-source electronic prototyping platform enabling users to create interactive electronic objects.” Arduinos have been used to build home security alarm systems, light sensors, alarm clocks, digital thermometers, MIDI music controllers, and much more. Learning to program an Arduino can let users truly understand how technology powers much of our world and will offer invaluable insight into how things are working behind the scenes. Adding Arduino learning opportunities certainly will enhance any STEM curriculum!

In this webinar you will:

– Learn what an Arduino is and what it is capable of doing,
– Understand the differences between various Arduino boards,
– Explore the Arduino Development Environment, and
– Highlight diverse projects while gaining hands-on experience programming an Arduino.
