Digitober (Basic Electronics and Coding)

Beginners on creating simple electronic circuits using Arduino/Coding

  • Starts 28 Oct
  • NW Computer Museum

Service Description

A course to allow students to learn basic electronics and C++ language. From programming to light a LED, up to creating an input signal to control LEDs. We will be offering further courses to expand on this knowledge. In-house volunteers who are programming specialist and electronic tutors who will deliver this course for up to 10 students. 28/10/21 6pm - 8pm -Introduction to PC, Arduino board, C++, Electronic Parts i.e., LED, Resistors & PC to Arduino Interfacing and uploading code to the Arduino controller board using Sketch (software). 29/10/21 6pm - 8pm - First Circuit (LED Blink) & Two LEDs Blink – Learning the program and electronic parts to enable these projects 01/11/21 6pm - 8pm - LED Bar Graph - learned previously how to control 1 or 2 LEDs through Sketch on the control board and learned some basic knowledge of programming. Now we control 10 LEDs and learn how to simplify the code 02/11/21 6pm - 8pm - LED Blink Smoothly - we have used Sketch to control up to 10 LEDs on the control board to blink and learned some basic knowledge of programming. Now, we will make LED emit different brightness of light 03/11/21 6pm - 8pm - Control LED with Push Button Switch - we have used the control board to output signals to make 10 LEDs flash and make one LED emit different brightness. Now, we learn how to get an input signal. 06/11/21 2pm - 4pm -Demonstration Day, during these two hours, we will be allowing our students to demonstrate and show their work to their parents or guardians, followed by Q&A fill in sheets and a little presentation to remember their time with us. We will also advise them on the next steps if they want to get more involved with programming and electronics.
