IR LED connected to pin3 and 220 ohm resistor to ground

This class will introduce students to the Arduino Single Board Microcontroller – a powerful platform for creating devices that interfaces with the physical world. The Arduino can be used in robotics, art installations, 3D printers, and other do-it-yourself electronics projects.

During this class students will:
Build circuits that utilize sensors and output devices that allow the microcontroller to react to its environment.
Learn electronics, programming, and physical computing concepts by building basic projects.
