Coding Electronics using ThinkerShield (Ages 9-12)

Duration: 6 hours
Workshop9 - 12 Years
27 April 2018, 10am–4pm Powerhouse Museum Book Tickets

This is a one-day workshop.

Get an introduction to the world of physical computing and electronic design where you use code to control electronic components such as lights and buzzers. Fun, fast and accessible, this workshop focuses on Arduino, an open-source microcontroller language, to bring the components to life. Learn how to code in this language using the ThinkerShield and a standard Arduino board.

Once you have mastered the basics, look at ways of implementing your own electronic designs into projects like musical instruments, arcade game controllers or mini robots. The possibilities are endless!

Digital learning programs at The Lab focus on premium learning experiences with a high facilitator to learner ratio. All courses cater for learners of differing abilities. The last half an hour of the workshop will be open for parents to view the participants’ work.
