Dive into engineering and computing using the Arduino microcontroller. This STEM+C camp will feed your interest in learning to code and understand the basics of electrical engineering through the storing, retrieving, and sending of information.
Join the Integrated Information Technology (IIT) Department in the College of Engineering and Computing who will help you design your own electrical circuits and sensors, and learn about programming them using the Arduino IDE, a simplified version of C++. Along with learning how to control lights, motors, and speakers – you will learn how to make your Arduino sense its environment.
Applying everything you’ve learned, you’ll end your adventure by making your own project that uses sensory data to solve an everyday problem!
