Level 1

Students will link their knowledge of Scratch to the basics of Arduino programming, making an Arcade Game.

 

Schedule:

17-21 February 9.00-12.00

6-10 April 13.00-16.00

25-29 May 9.00-12.00

17-21 August 9.00-12.00

 

 

Using Mechantronics students will learn how to connect components on a breadboard and do basic Arduino programming to control them. The course is designed to introduce concepts step-by-step.

 

Your child will learn:

  • How to create a simple LED circuit to LED flashes at various intervals

  • The anatomy of an Arduino sketch, software and breadboard

  • Setup() functions and a loop() functions

  • How to “code” the Arduino

  • Mechanics and circuitry basics of robotics

 

Cost: £219.00* (Including Arduino Kit* to take home)

 

Eligibility: This course is suitable for intermediate learners who have Scratch or other programming experience. Candidates may be invited to an interview to determine their suitability.

 

Non-Refundable Deposit: £50 is required at the time of registration to guarantee a place for your child. This will be deducted from the programme cost.

 

Each student will be provided with their own Arduino kit*

 

* Two members from the same family registering for this course a 10% discount.

Projects

Students will be using visual coding and Arduino C which allows them to disconnect the Arduino from the Computer to create stand alone, autonomous projects.
