Engineering 2018: Introduction to Programming camp

Written by

Campers will learn how computers work and how to control devices and components with computers.

In addition, they will learn to use various solid-state (electronic) sensors to detect electrical, magnetic or physical signals around us and process them to gather useful information, such as temperature, humidity or speed of moving objects.

An Arduino-based complete course material will be provided, and all circuits with programming steps will be explained. Campers will be trained with hands-on examples: how to read schematics, assembly plans and building functioning electronics circuits on breadboards and test for functionality.

Lunch and snacks will be provided.

This camp is an introductory course so no prior experience in programming is required.
