For ages 11 years old to 18 years old
Every Wednesday 3:30 to 5:30
This program is split between sessions. The first 12 weeks is Robotics Club and the second 12 weeks is Junior Engineers. Both classes will stay on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30.
Students will learn how microcontrollers are used to control devices such as LEDs, temperature and humidity sensors, infrared motion detectors, ultrasonic distance sensors, active and passive buzzers, water level detectors, and a variety of other sensors. Such sensors make up the Internet of Things (IoT) that is extending the traditional Internet. Students will build circuits containing these devices and write code that will make the devices work. They will program in PictoBlox, a visual programming tool and Python, one of the most popular and widely used programming languages.
