UbiCOMP invited a group of high school students to Arduino workshop. During the meeting, students had a chance to play and learn with popular Arduino microcontroller and basic electronic components.
First, we explained the basics of Arduino construction, functioning and capabilities. Then, we helped everyone to build an easy circuit to control the LED diode. At the end, we encourage everyone to play and learn.
They had a lot of fun playing songs with a buzzer and flashing LED lights. Such beginner workshop is a good opportunity to start the adventure with electronics which brings many benefits in future career.
If you’re interested in organising the workshop at your institution/company, please don’t hesitate to contact us via e-mail.
