This class is open to all middle school and high school students (grades 5 - 12). This class provides instruction in the principles of electronics prototyping and programming. Using the Arduino microcontroller platform, students will engage in hands-on projects and engaging lessons. Every lesson includes time to build a circuit and program its functionality.
- Building circuits on breadboards
- Connecting circuits to the Arduino
- Writing code for the Arduino
- Uploading code to the Arduino
- Debugging code for the Arduino
- LED light show
- Building a automatic night light
- Push-button games (racing game, guessing game, etc)
- Programming a stopwatch
Every student will be provided with the necessary attention and instruction to learn. Every student will also be given access to the devices necessary to program the hardware and learn the material. At the end of the course, each student will receive $50-$100 in hardware that they keep, so that they can continue to create, innovate, and review the material.
hackaway's mission is to provide affordable classes to all demographics of students. We do not want any one to be excluded from the opportunity to take our courses. For this reason, we have a Pay-What-You-Can policy. Anyone, regardless of means, should be able to attend hackaway courses, so please contribute what you are able.
