Arduino Electronics and Code
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.

If you would rather work offline, you should use the latest version of the desktop IDE.
2023 Summer Camp - Weekly, 3 hours/day
For kids who are into tech. Arduino is one of the most useful microprocessors for any projects. Campers code (in C ++) an Arduino to make an LED light blink, learn how circuits works, and build a simple game.
