Touch the light sensor to activate the LED
Before the summer break I spent Monday evenings with my mentors at Hackspace learning about the Arduino system. I think it is a great way to teach C derived programming languages and illustrate input-process-output in a concrete context.
The benefit of Arduino is that you can make real stuff like a system to activate a LED when someone is standing on your doorstep, or to get a text when someone presses your doorbell. Arduino can be used to solve problems, the key focus in the new computing programme of study.
Increasingly cool Arduino has a rapidly expanding following of hackers and tinkerers.
So what's on offer here?
Part of the work Beautiful Education has been doing has involved Google Hangouts and now we'd like to run a distance learning test with a willing partner.
Would you like to get an Arduino demonstration of about 15 minutes to half an hour on Google Hangouts? Would you like us to organise an expert tutor to deliver an Arduino training course in Hackney or at your place?
Just get in touch.
