  • This event has passed.

What You'll Do:

In this workshop, you will learn how engineers prototype projects starting in a CAD (Computer-Aided Design) program, test their project, and then (as an optional add-on) build and code the prototype.

You will build nine (9) prototypes in Tinkercad Circuits, code them, test them, and then as an optional extension build and code the actual prototype. You will learn the basics of coding in C/C++, electrical circuits, digital design, the physics of electricity, coding conditional statements, calibrating and using scientific sensors, and innovation.

The nine (9) projects are as follows
1) LEDs
2) Buzzers
3) RGB LEDs
4) LCD Displays
5) Servos
6) Temperature Sensor
7) Photoresistor
8) Gas Sensor
9) Distance Sensor

Each class will start with building the project in Tinkercad. If the students have the parts necessary they can stay on for the extended learning opportunity and build the actual project.

The student should have access to a computer with an internet connection to create an account on and access tinkercad.com.

The extended learning opportunity requires the Arduino IDE and the parts.

What You'll Need:

Required

You will need to create an account at Tinkercad.com

Optional

For programming the physical prototypes you will need the Arduino IDE. Download Here. The optional extended learning activities are covered by a training kit available through Gearbox Labs. Order Here. You may also be interested in the Gearbox Labs Training Kit Bundle which includes a book, The ARDUINO(R) Classroom: STEAM Edition as well as the kit of parts. Order Here. If you have parts already - double-check against this list and order what you need from the Gearbox Labs Parts Store Here.

About the Facilitator:

En los últimos 17 años, la Licenciada Isabel Mendiola había estado trabajando como docente en primaria, secundaria y preparatoria en Monterrey, México. Ella a impartido las materias de biología, Física, y química y fué pionera en la implementación de los programas STEM/STEAM en la ciudad de Monterrey, a impartido sus materias en inglés y español para alumnos con diversas habilidades.

Durante este tiempo, ella planeó, preparó, diseñó y ejecutó diversos métodos para preparar a sus alumnos para importantes competencias estatales y nacionales en México, algunas de ellas son el proyecto Jason, Youth Leader Explorers, Feria Nacional de Ciencias e Ingenierías (Fenaci) y Concurso Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología organizado por la Comisión Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).

La importancia de preparar a sus alumnos en áreas de ingeniería fue su inspiración para introducir el uso de microcontroladores UNO a sus materias de ciencia y laboratorios.

Su experiencia en el aula, la pedagogía utilizada para la enseñanza de la ingeniería la ha plasmado en un diseño curricular, lo ha implementado, y evaluado en los niveles de secundaria y preparatoria. En la institución educativa donde laboró tuvo la oportunidad de escribir e implementar programas extracurriculares y cursos para maestros, así como el diseño de las ferias de ciencias con acentuación en ingeniería.

La Licenciada Mendiola es la co-autora del curriculum diseñado para la enseñanza de la ingeniería compuesto de tres volúmenes The ARDUINO Classroom: STEAM Edition, The STEAM+C Classroom: Internet of Things Edition, y The STEAM+C Classroom: Science and Engineering Fair Edition.
