Description

Class Experience

1.  Basic concepts of a circuit.
2.  The parts of an Arduino program.
3.  Making connections from software to hardware.
Students will need the following materials (see below for suggested purchases): Arduino Uno (or Nano) Breadboard Jumper Wires (at least 6) Addressable LED light strip If you’ve already purchased any sort of Arduino starter kit, you’ve probably got everything that is needed with the exception of the addressable LEDs. These are similar to the LED strips you can stick on your wall or desk. A short strip of LEDs 30-100 individually addressable LEDs will be sufficient. Details: 1. Arduino (Uno or Nano) - ARDUINO UNO R3 [A000066] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008GRTSV6/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_8P9QTVQJ9HYRC33W131G) OR Nano V3.0, Nano Board ATmega328P 5V 16M Micro-Controller Board Compatible with Arduino IDE (Nano x 3 with USB Cable) (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G99NNXL/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_6V4AZQW3G216MNCFP25P) NOTE: Nano’s typically come 3-5 to a box. Be sure to order one that comes with the connection cable to connect to your laptop! 2.

Students are free to purchase any other individual addressable LED strips, but there is no guarantee they will function in the same manner.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
