Description

Class Experience

At the end of this course, the student should have a good understanding of microcontrollers in the real world, plus be skilled in basic programming and input sensor usage. 
I have been in the tech industry as an engineer and entrepreneur all my life, and building robots since the early 70s. As a young teenager I was building microcontrollers from scratch for business use. I am experienced in both hardware and software, giving unique ability to convey the concepts of robotics (marriage of hardware + software) in easy to understand ways. The goal is understanding the concepts to build a foundation upon with to go further. 
Anytime a project is not completed in class, the expectation would be for it to be completed between classes. The teacher will be available throughout the week for online discussion and questions. 
The microcontroller called MicroBit must be purchased and available for the first class. In order to take this class, a purchase from the following link is required: http://www.perfectpackageonline.com/product/single-microbit-go-kit/6?cp=true&sa=true&sbp=false&q=false
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
