Introduction to Engineering Design and Coding Using Tinkercad Circuits and Arduino Uno
January 9, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am PST- $35.00
- 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
3) RGB LEDs
4) LCD Displays
6) Temperature Sensor
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:
RequiredYou will need to create an account at Tinkercad.com
OptionalFor 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.
