Students will bring gadgets of all sorts to life with electrical engineering hardware and software! They will be given an Arduino kit with a multitude of sensors and electrical equipment that they will assemble into a system to be programmed through a simplified Python language. The specific microprocessor and attachments are designed to help students build an electrical system and program it to complete a task. They will discover how engineering and programming work together to make their new and exciting inventions a reality! At the end of the camp the students will have a good understanding of electrical engineering and programing, but most importantly they will be able to take home their kits for personal use!
