Arduino: Intro to Hardware Programming (Age 6-8)

Explorer arduino3

CAMP OVERVIEW

Language: English

This course aims to introduce hardware programming through Arduino, an open-source electronics platform with easy-to-use hardware and software. By covering hardware basics including input and sensors, students explore the Arduino extensible software and hardware. Students will be using Snap4Arduino, a block based programming language, to give students hands-on first try on programming.

With the rise of the Internet of Things, there is a growing need to be able to use, understand and build hardware products. By the end of this course, students not only develop a basic understanding in programming, but also gain essential knowledge on electronics and hardware.

Takeaways

  • Understand basic electronic concepts such as what a ‘microcontroller’, ‘circuit’, is etc.
  • Learn fundamental concepts such as functions, variables, loops and conditionals in a visual way
  • Develop interest in either/both programming and hardware.

DIFFICULTY

Advanced

WHAT TO BRING

  • A laptop (PC/Mac) with charger
  • A mindset to create and experiment!

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
