Arduino Coding Part 2: Reading and Using Sensors

Elene Feigenbaum
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(123)
In this 10-lesson class, students will learn about Arduino sensors, how to connect them, and how to use data from them to write code that uses information detected by the sensor.

Class experience

Intermediate Level
Students will learn about digital and analog sensors, how to wire them to the Arduino, how to read and save values obtained by the sensors, and how to control the flow of an Arduino sketch using if/else and while statements.
I have been teaching Arduino coding for 5 years to middle and high school students.  I created and coded many of own Arduino projects and guided over 100 students as they created and built their own Arduino inventions. 
Student should have taken my Part 1 class or at least have basic knowledge of the Arduino and some simple coding skills, such as knowing how to turn on and off LEDs.  Students should also  know how to use a breadboard to write LEDS.
Students need to either have an account with www.autocad.com to use the free TinkerCad circuit simulator or download the free Arduino IDE from www.arduino.cc. TinkerCad does NOT all the devices we will be learning about, however.

You can buy the components separately, but it would be more expensive than buying a kit that has all the parts you need and more. Either of these kits would be more than sufficient for this class.  There are larger kits with more components, but they are not necessary for this class.

Recommended Devices/kits if you are purchasing components separately:
     Arduino Uno (or clone) with USB cable
     solderless breadboard
     3 different color LEDs
     3 1000-ohm resistors
     3 220-ohm resistors
     1-3 pushbuttons
     1-3 potentiometers
     1 servo motor
     1 ultrasonic sensor
     1 passive piezo buzzer
     1 joystick
     1 keypad
     1 PIR motion sensor
     1 sound sensor
     1 RFID sensor and chip
     1 tilt sensor
     1 remote control with IR receiver
     1 water level sensor
     1 DHT-11 module (digital humidity and temperature)
     various other sensors may include:  magnetic hall sensor, capacitive touch, rain sensor
     Many male-male jumper wires of different colors
     Many male-female jumper wires of different colors

Recommended kit:

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We will be using the website, www.tinkercad.com, in order to simulate the Arduino circuits and coding.  If students will be using their own Arduinos, they can use the Arduino IDE program that can be downloaded from www.arduino.cc.

I have been a private school middle and high school science teacher for over 30 years. During that time, I taught classes in chemistry, engineering, earth science, life science, chemistry, forensic science, biology, and health.  I enjoy teaching...
