Programming with Arduinos
Students will explore the physics and engineering concepts including:
designing and creating circuits
analogue and digital inputs and outputs
controlling circuits with a microcontroller and microcontroller programming.
No prior experience in electric/electronic circuits or programming is required.
Programming with Arduinos is available through the following program types. Select a program type to view more information.
On-Site at Quantum Victoria
Students use LEDs, LDRs, potentiometers and an Arduino Uno to create a dexterity game. They will exercise problem-solving skills whilst programming and working with electronic circuits to solve problems related to real-world applications. A visual programming language; Snap4Arduino is used throughout the day.
This program will culminate in the students creating an authentic electronic device
This portal module guides students through the fundamentals of electricity, electric/electronic circuits and components and circuit theory. The activities in the module make use of simulated electrical laboratories.
Synchronous (with Quantum Victoria)
Through a series of challenges in a virtual electronics lab environment (Tinkercad Circuits), students will utilise acquired knowledge to create circuits.
The students will then be introduced to microcontrollers and use a virtual Arduino microcontroller to logically control their virtual electronic circuits. This is delivered over two sessions or can be condensed to one 90min session.
We acknowledge that Secondary Schools operate within a timetable and can offer a range of times to accommodate this.
