Arduino Projects for Intermediate and Advanced Students

In this 10-week class, students will create projects using multiple sensors, actuators, and displays.

Class experience

The goal of this class is help students improve their coding skills by creating various projects that use multiple sensors and actuators. Students will help design projects and the structure of the code.
I have been a private school middle and high school science teacher for over 30 years and an Outschool teacher for over 2 years.  During that time, I taught classes in chemistry, engineering, earth science, life science, chemistry, forensic science, biology, and health.  I enjoy teaching through hands-on experimentation and I believe that students learn best when they are activity engaged in the learning process and when they connect new concept with prior experiences. I have both a bachelor's and a master's degree in chemistry, as well as a secondary chemistry education teaching certificate from the state of Ohio.

On Outschool, I teach a variety of hands-on experiment classes in the areas of chemistry and physics, as well as Arduino coding classes.  In my science classes, I focus on experiments that can be performed using household materials. I build on student's prior knowledge and experience and try to make learning fun.  I like to introduce the topic, assess student knowledge, explain the experiment, and then discuss the science behind it.

My Arduino coding classes focus on basic coding skills needed to program an Arduino microcontroller. Students learn about the Arduino,  how to write code that allows it to read input from sensors, and send output to actuators.  Students are guided through the wiring and coding for each type of sensor and actuator so that they will eventually be able to create their own inventions.

I am an amateur photographer and love to photograph my grandchildren, my dog, and wildlife. My hobbies include scrapbooking and glass fusion.  I also enjoy tinkering with my Arduino and 3D printer to create inventions of my own.
Projects will use some or all of these devices:
ultrasonic sensor
stepper motor
RFID reader
Water Level Sensor
rotary encoder
Photoresistor (LDR)
PIR (Motion sensor)
DHT-11 (digital humidity and temperature sensor)
Remote Control
tilt sensor
Sound Sensor
Passive Buzzer
Active Buzzer
Real Time Clock (DS1307)
Accelerometer/Gyroscope (MPU6050)
DC motor
H-Bridge (L293D  motor driver)
7 digit LED display
4-digit LED display
8x8 LED Matrix

The following kit is recommended since it includes all the necessary components:  There are two versions, the UNO version and the MEGA version:

UNO Kit:

or the upgraded system for UNO:

MEGA Kit::

Just the MEGA if you already have a kit:

LCD with i2C backpack:

i2C backpack only:
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will be using a simulation called TinkerCad to demonstrate how to wire the projects. The simulation will only be used as a demonstration using the screen share option on Zoom.
