Inspire the next generation of scientists, engineers, and technicians by introducing your students to Arduino! In our Arduino program, students have the opportunity to
- learn about electrical energy, open and closed circuits, and parts of a circuit;
- construct a circuit and identify where the conserved energy is transformed within that circuit;
- build models that demonstrate how electrical energy can be transformed into other forms of energy (such as light, sound, and mechanical motion); and,
- understand and interpret two-dimensional drawings to create three-dimensional models.
Currently, we have twelve Arduino Starter Kits and have developed a sequence of activities for students to progress from simple to more complex circuits. We can accommodate groups of ten to twenty-four students, grades six and up. The minimum time needed for an Arduino program is 1.5 hours. If your group can stay for a longer period of time, they can construct and program more advanced circuits.
If you are interested in scheduling a group of students for an Arduino program, please email us at Challenger@richlandone.org or call us at 803-929-3951 so we can design a program to fit your needs.
