♦ Note: For successful completion of course, Arduino Starter Kit is required.
♦ Arduino Starter Online Bundle (with Arduino Starter Kit) available.
♦ Course validity: 3 months
What is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language (based on Wiring), and the Arduino Software (IDE), based on Processing.
Thanks to its simple and accessible user experience, Arduino has been used in thousands of different projects and applications. The Arduino software is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. Arduino is a key tool to learn new things. Anyone – children, hobbyists, artists, programmers – can start tinkering just following the step by step instructions of a kit or sharing ideas online with other members of the Arduino community.
Who is this for?
This online course is suitable for beginners who are new to electronics and coding. We recommend ages 14 and above.
The Arduino Online Course includes:
♦ 10 hours of step-by-step guided tutorials (video)
♦ Assessment in course available
♦ Mini hands-on challenges during tutorial available
♦ Certificate of completion
To allow participants to learn electronics and coding in a self-paced and fun way. Participants will receive a thorough hands-on education on various commonly used electronic components such as LEDS, Resistors, Capacitors and more. Each session culminates to a project that participants will have to complete.
Upon completion of this course, participants will become adept at understanding electronic schematic diagrams. Understanding what the basic components are in a circuit. Learning how to Code in C-Language.
