Presented by: Sanjin Dedić
Teacher PD Event Information: 6 Teacher PD Hours
The new Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum for years 7-10 is very broad, covering electronic systems, data analysis, robotics and programming. This workshop is designed to address all of these categories with one technology: Arduino. Arduino is a microcontroller (a small programmable computer) which can easily be used to add intelligence to electric circuits. Over the two day workshop 3rd you will learn to do all of the listed activities and also receive the resources to repeat them with your class:
- Control Multiple LED lights and piezo buzzers using push buttons
- Program a laser tripwire circuit
- Create a multi sensor alarm system (Light, Ultrasonic and Passive Infra-Red)
- Use light sensors as analog input to create a responsive lamp
NOTE: Classroom cost of Arduino kits ranges from $25-50 per student and the cost of one single Mbot is $150 (one robot per 2 students is sufficient).
