BLINK! An Introduction to Programming with Arduino

Ian Nelson
Average rating:
Number of reviews:
Get acquainted with building circuits and programming the Arduino!

Class experience

  • Students will learn how to: - Build circuits on a breadboard - Interpret breadboard diagrams - Write simple programs that incorporate if/else statements
I am an engineer who has lots of experience supporting students tackling ambitiously fun projects. I've incorporated Arduinos in some of my own design work, and I love seeing students' ideas come to life.
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
Students will actively build and program circuits during class to ensure that their projects work.
Grades Offered
The instructor will provide notes about how to use the Arduino board.

Students must have their own Arduino board and circuit breadboarding kit. All projects require the Arduino, a breadboard, and wires. The Arduino IDE can be downloaded at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/software.

The first project uses:
- 2 LEDs
- 2 resistors (220 ohm OR 330 ohm -- I'll help you find the right ones!)

The second project uses
- 3 LEDs
- 3 resistors (220 ohm OR 330 ohm)
- 1 push button
- 1 10K resistor
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Building successful Arduino projects requires close attention to detail. I will be building circuits with the students during week 1 and week 3 and coding with them during week 2 and week 4. You may want to learn alongside your child to ensure that they are placing the components in the right place.
