Adventures in Electronics with Arduino
Program. Build. Invent.
Bring gadgets to life with electrical engineering and hardware code! Learn how to program electronics using Arduino, an electrical engineering prototyping platform that teaches people about electronics and how electronic circuits can work. Ignite your creativity as you discover how engineering and programming work together to make new and exciting inventions a reality.
You’ll use the engineering design process (i.e., create, test and improve) to break down a problem, design a solution, and finally build it. You’ll leave camp with an understanding of the electrical engineering process along with an Arduino kit to take home. Find this camp near you >>
