Arduino (Ages 9-17)

Arduino

Experience the Arduino program during Robotics Summer Camp! Students will spend the week building and programming robots, and experience additional arts activities as we transition from STEM-based learning to STEAM-based learning. There will be field trip options allowing students to understand the real world applications of STEM! 
Advanced curricula is available for returning students. 

At IRIS, we provide students with educational STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning programs using LEGO Robotics technology!   The camp structure will provide students with the time and resources required to work with their peers, create complex designs and participate in challenges and activities. Students will explore STEM topics beyond the classroom, create real world applications and discover the countless career opportunities in related fields.

ARDUINO
The Arduino programming and hardware language provides students with a simple and accessible user experience and introduces students to multiple new projects of various levels of complexity. Arduino is an open-source prototyping platform which can read inputs and turn the inputs into outputs. Students will have access to everything required to complete 16 circuits which will teach students to read sensors, display information on an LCD, drive motors and more.  Students will learn how to connect each circuit with the included parts. This kit allows students to explore independent thinking by utilizing the example code and troubleshooting tips. The kit does not require soldering, and students are not required to have previous programming or electronics.
