Jump into: Electronic Design (Ages 8–12)

Duration: 2 hours
Workshop8 - 12 Years

This is a two hour program running at the Museums Discovery Centre.

Get an introduction to the world of physical computing 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.

“Jump Into” workshops are a rapid introduction to a topic and can be built upon by attending our school holiday workshops. No parental supervision is required.

Please be sure to read our essential information for The Lab workshops.
