Introduction to ARDUINO


What is it about?

Arduino is an open source programmable circuit board that can be integrated into a wide variety of maker-space projects both simple and complex.

In this activity, we will be doing simple introductory level projects to introduce use of Arduino, sensors and other components.

In addition, this is an opportunity for experiencing the application of some physics concepts and principles in the context of electronics / robotics.

Quota of Activity

Maximum 14 students per one session

Who can Apply

  • BLIS Middle school students and
  • BLIS High school students

Good to know

From the science and physics lessons, the knowledge of "Basic circuits connections (series and parallel)", and basic computer literacy will help for a better learning experience.

What do you need to have?

  • A laptop (for some sessions)

Time and Place

on Tuesdays between 16:30 and 18:00 (1.5 hour per week)

at the Innovation focused Technology Laboratory (in the Annex Building next to the Tent Sports Hall)
