Physics Projects for the Classroom using the Arduino Uno

May 22, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

 - $100.00

What You'll Do:

Join Gearbox Labs in this four-week workshop on building and using Arduino-connected devices for the physics classroom.

This workshop will feature four sensors for physics classrooms:

  • Color Sensor
  • Sound Sensor
  • Flex Sensor
  • Frequency Generator

The workshop is designed for educators, science students, and science enthusiasts who want to learn how to build and use Arduino-connected physics projects. The workshop will start with digital design and prototyping and then continue to building and coding the attached devices.

The projects in this workshop range from sensors that can determine RGB colors, monitor sound, flex sensors that are used to control devices like motors and servos, and how to use the Arduino Uno to generate multiple, specific frequencies.

Experience with Arduino Uno is helpful and having the parts to build the projects will maximize your participation.

Skill Level:

Basic computer and internet skills.

Skills you will learn:

Coding in C++ Building Useful Physics Classroom Related Projects

What You'll Need:

A computer with high-speed internet access, a Tinkercad account, and installed Arduino IDE. Arduino Uno, USB cable, Jumper wires. plus the following specialized parts. Use these links to order from Gearbox Labs. If you do not have an Arduino UNO, we suggest the Gearbox Labs' Training Kit or Training  Bundle (with curriculum) This kit includes several of the specialized parts. Along with the kit order the Color Sensor, Pushbuttons, TFT, Sound Sensor, and Flex Sensors from the list above, and you will be set to take the workshop.


About the Facilitator:

Founded in July 2019 by Isabel Mendiola and Peter Haydock, Gearbox Labs, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) / 509 (a)(2) public charity incorporated in the State of Wisconsin, United States.

With over 45 years of education experience in the classroom, education publishing, K-20 education, and adult learning, as well as numerous awards for their work, the founders created Gearbox Labs to address an international shortage of STEM professionals.

Our mission is to produce cutting-edge and rigorous STEAM education resources and programs for schools, homeschools, out-of-school programs, and self-motivated learners.

Our first curriculum, The STEAM Editionfeatures 25 projects with 110 project extensions for a STEM/STEAM classroom. Our curriculum integrates engineering design, coding in C/C++, and digital prototyping into STEM/STEAM content.
